Advent wreath taken in St Mary's church, Beverley, East Yorkshire.

The Advent wreath, or Advent crown, is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar of the Western church. The Advent Wreath is traditionally a Lutheran practice, albeit it has spread to many other Christian denominations. It is usually a horizontal evergreen wreath with four candles.

According to present usage, Advent is a period beginning with the Sunday nearest to the feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle (November 30) and embracing four Sundays. The first Sunday may be as early as November 27, and then Advent has twenty-eight days, or as late as December 3, giving the season only twenty-one days.

With Advent the ecclesiastical year begins in the Western churches.

The first Candle is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, shortly after November 30. It is called the Prophecy Candle.

The second candle, lit on the second Sunday of advent along with the first candle, is the Bethlehem candle.

The third candle, lit on the third Sunday of advent with the first two, is the Shepherds' candle.

The fourth candle, lit on the fourth Sunday of advent, is the Angel's candle.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Speed 'n' Power'.

Best wishes,
Philip
