What is advent? Advent is a time of celebration and thankfulness leading up to Christmas day. Most churches take the 4 Sundays before Christmas to talk about the hope, love, joy and peace of Jesus Christ. Churches and families often use four candles to symbolize these four things! You can also follow an advent calendar or daily devotional as a fun and joyful way to praise the Lord and prepare for Christmas!
