Advent

Definition: Advent means arrival. To Christians it means the four weeks leading up to Christmas.

In some homes special candle holders, or Advent wreaths are displayed holding four candles. One candle is lit the fourth Sunday before Christmas, two the next Sunday, and one the last Sunday.

Advent calendars is a German custom to help pass the time until Christmas. Each calendar has 24 doors. One is opened each day beginning on December 1.
