These 10" battery operated Advent Candle Tapers, 3 purple and 1 pink, would fit a standard size home advent wreath. A wax casing gives the appearance of traditional candle, yet it is a safer alternative and offers no messy wax problems. Simply twist the base to “light” the candle. Each candle requires two AAA batteries – not included. Candles are in an acrylic box.

Three of the candles are purple to represent penance and longing; they are lit during the first, second and fourth weeks. One of the candles is rose colored to symbolize joy; it is lit during the third week in glad anticipation of the birth of Jesus. Evergreens, a symbol of eternal life and purple ribbons symbolic of penance are often added in preparation of the Lord’s coming.
