advent wreath

the advent wreath or "crown" is designed to help commemorate the time of waiting, anticipation, expectancy of the first arrival of Jesus on Christmas day. each week another candle is added to the lit ones and the accumulation of light is an expression of the growing anticipation of the birth of Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
the boys got to make one for our family this year last sunday (the first day of advent).
