Advent Calendar - December 3

Christmas Fact: Advent wreaths are a church and family tradition. Made out of greenery these round wreaths sit flat or hang horizontally.

The wreath holds four candles and another sits in the center. Today in churches around the world, people are lighting that first candle on the wreath (signifying Expectation or Hope) because today is the first Sunday of Advent.
