Advent Sunday

Happy 1st Sunday in Advent! Its a Austrian/ German tradition to light a candle on the first Sunday of Advent then one every Sunday up till Christmas day, so I have learnt over the years in my German class. We have tried to do one for the past few years but usually forget and start late but this year we actually lit the first candle on the first Sunday in Advent. Basically we just made a ring out of scrunched up newspaper then covered it with another layer of paper to hole it together, wrapped wire around the soaked it in water. Cut Holly and Ivy from the garden and poked them into the ring. Finally wired it all round to hold it and added 4 candles!
