Today is the Second Advent – which means we have two more Sundays till it is Christmas!
Mummy told me that it’s not a countdown machine but that it has a meaning to the Christian faith. The Advent Wreath which is made from a circle of evergreen plants like holly and ivy which symbolises the eternity of God – no beginning or end. The evergreen is a reminder that God does not change and represents the hope of newness. The holly is also a symbol of the crown of thorns that Jesus wore when he was crucified.
So lots of meanings in the Advent Wreath.
We’re just getting ready for everyone to come by for some Christmas cakes and coffee.
