Advent: The Advent Wreath

As you can imagine, this time of year lends itself to giving numerous short teachings on Avent and its customs. One aspect that comes up is teh Advent wreath. Here is a good quick video on where the Advent wreath came from. It leaves out the explaination of the candles being added as a form of pagan worship to the "sun god." ... seriously! It's awesome how the Church can take local customs and "baptize" them, elevating them to a greater and sacred meaning. Enjoy!
