These 7/8" x 10" Advent Candles, 3 purple and 1 pink, are for the standard size Advent Wreath. Boxed.
The Advent Wreath has had a significant resurgence in recent years. Because of the growing commercialization of the Christmas season, many families have found that the Advent Wreath has deepened their appreciation of the true meaning of this Holy Season.
Three of the Advent candles are purple to represent penance and longing; they are lit during the first, second and fourth weeks of Advent. One of the Advent candles is rose colored to symbolize joy; it is lit during the third week of Advent in glad anticipation of the birth of Jesus. Evergreens, a symbol of eternal life and purple ribbons symbolic of penance are often added to an Advent Wreath in preparation of the Lord’s coming.
