|Our family Advent wreath on Christmas Day|
Hi everyone. As promised, every Sunday I am going to tell you a personal Christmas story via a video I made. Today's story is about our family Advent wreath. The video is below but before I get to that a little trivia.
Advent wreaths come from pre-Christian Germany where it was cold and dark. Evergreens were gathered and fire lit in order to welcome the light and hope for coming Spring and renewed light.
By the 16th century, Christians had kept the Advent tradition alive but changed it for the light and hope of Christ.
See you tomorrow.
