Advent Season for Catholics is the time for hope and waiting. Four Sundays before the Christmas Day is the Advent Season which will commence on the eve of Christmas day which will serve for catholics, as the time allocated for them to prepare for the coming of their savior, Jesus Christ that is to come on Christmas Day. They have derived the word Advent from the latin word coming which denotes the coming of the Saviour.
A long, long time ago, as in centuries ago, Christians like Catholics, uses Advent Wreath which will serve as a reminder of their belief that their savior is coming and the time has come for them to prepare. When the Advent season will come, you will be able to observe that you and those people around you will be able to make this celebration and the birth of Jesus more meaningful with the help of Advent devotionals, the Bible, and having to light the candles and knowing what each candle denotes.
The Advent Wreath is believed to symbolize a cycle and at the center of it is a White candle that represents Jesus Christ. To some countries, each candle represents something else but for most countries, especially the Catholic dominated countries, it is believed that this candles represent love, joy, peace and hope. Other churches in the world who are also Advent Devotionals, believed that the four candles that surrounds the Advent Wreath, each represent the four of the most important people according to their beliefs and these candles is believed to represent the Angels, the Shepherds, Mary and Joseph.
