Advent time

Advent time is a time of spiritual and worship preparation for Christmas. It begins with the celebration of the first Advent Sunday this year, December 2, and ends the week after the fourth Advent Sunday on Holy Day, December 24. Unlike fasting, which we commemorate as a preparation for Easter and lasts forty days, Advent time is not limited to the exact number of days. With Advent time in the Catholic Church, they begin a new church year and direct preparation for Christmas.

  1. When I lived in Latvia every Advent my late husband and I made an Advent wreath and lit the candles one by one as per the Advent Sunday leading up to Christmas. Now, I just light a candle each Sunday but no longer use a wreath
