Second Advent 2015

It is the Second Sunday of Advent and we have lit the two candles in waiting, waiting for the arrival of Christmas.  The Advent consist of four Sundays before Christmas and on these Sundays, we light the first candle on the first Sunday and on the second Sunday, we have two candles lit and so on.    It is a Swedish tradition that I have carried with me.

White candles are most often used in religious ceremonies and meditation.  They give peace and comfort and enhances spirituality.

During the Advent season, a Star is also hung in the window.  The Star is hung in my living room facing the Back Forty.  This particular Star is made of patterned paper. An electrical cord with a small bulb is inserted in the Star and when lit, it shows up very nicely inside and outside.  ( I bought my Star at IKEA.)

During this very busy time, I hope that we can take a few moments to be still and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
Happy Holidays.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
