The children were introduced to the Advent Wreath today. We discussed how many candles there were; 3 purple, 1 white and one which initially we thought was pink but we found out it has a special name of ‘rose’.
The candles are lit on the four Sundays building up to Christmas, with the white one being lit on Christmas morning.
The candles represented: hope, faith, joy and peace.
The children were fascinated with the wreath.
