Today is the 1. Advent.
Usually there is an Advent wreath with 4 candles on the table.
At the fourth Sunday before Christmas the celebration starts
by lightning the first candle.
Next Sunday 2 are lighted and so on.
Such one I would call typical, though there are “modern” ones meanwhile.
Happy 1st advent Franz.
My friends further north sent me this picture today of theirs.
The have a beautiful one.
The photo I added was only an example.
They also mention something about sweets they hide in kids shoes, but can’t recall if that’s a Christmas thing or the start of a new school term?
Appreciate the share… Some of my ancestors came from Germany decent and nice to see those trafitions.
Always good to keep traditions going
My family lights candles at home as well. When I go home next I’ll take a pic but nice to see others having advent/Christmas traditions
