The History and meaning of Advent wreath

We have a tradition in our family, to celebrate Advent, as a time of expectation and hope. Each year we prepare Advent wreath, this year it is just 4 candles and greens and pine cones from our yard.

Every evening we light the candle (one candle for each week), read a Scripture for that day (this year we follow Jesse tree outline), sing Advent songs (like O, come, o come Emmanuel) or learn new Polish or English Christmas carols, read daily portion from an Advent story book (this year it is “Bartholomew’s Passage“) and make Jesse tree ornaments.
