A tradition at Linderhof
has always been the advent wreath
To be lit on each of the Sundays before Christmas
The First Candle
The Second Candle
The third candle
And the fourth candle
The Advent Wreath has always been part of our holidays
both at home and at church.
We always used white candles
As did the church
But years ago, the church changed to pink and purple candles.
The Shepherd's Candle is the pink one, while the other Sundays
are the purple ones.
If there is a candle in the middle
That is the
and it is lit on Christmas Eve
It's a grand tradition
as you light the candles
and say a prayer.
It makes you remember what the season is truly about.
Our Advent Wreath has been placed on the breakfast room table
We're ready to start the holiday season.
By lighting that first candle on Sunday.
And even though the candles are only lit on Sunday,
since the Advent Wreath is the centerpiece of the breakfast room table,
it is a constant reminder of what the season is about.
It's Sunday and I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Of Christmases Past.
