Advent Wreath

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is Advent wreath, it’s from Germany and it’s used in Advent period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas. Christians using Advent wreath to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. The wreath has four candles and it’s made of fir tree branches knotted with a red ribbon and decorated with pine cones, holly, and laurel. On the first Sunday we lit one candle and same done every day. On the second Sunday we lit the next candle and so on...Each candle has a different meaning. The different churches have given them different meaning.    I chose it because it is a tradition that our family for many, many years. In Germany you can see the Advent wreath on a table in every family or on a desk in school, hospitals, in offices, in the police department and everywhere. It teaches about the real meaning of Christmas.  I think that the advent wreath is a tradition that is loving where i can express the real meaning of Christmas.
