Advent 1

A solitary candle lighting the darkness. Advent is the season of waiting and preparation for Christmas.

The first candle is a symbol of hope.

Your candle arrangement is beautiful, Marie! I think I know those candle holders... ;o) I love that you are using them for advent. One of my favorite things just now is lighting the candles each week. Hubby & I take some time out to slow down, enjoy and be thankful. Happy Week, my friend. Enjoy this seasons! :o) ((BIG HUGS))

What beautiful glasses you have for your tea lights. It is such a beautiful tradition to light the advent candle. I choose four small twisted stump candles this year. I love your dainty holders though. Do you use them each year or also change what you use for advent candles?

Hugs ~

Tracy ~ I used the two candle holders you sent and added two of my own, which are similar in size and colour ~ I think that they look great!

Heidi ~ this is the first year that I have used these candle holders for Advent, but I think that I may have started a new Christmas tradition with this.
