Meaning of the Candles:

  • Hope (The First Candle): The first candle is like a spark of hope. It reminds us of looking forward to something exciting, just like waiting for your birthday or a special holiday. This candle says, “Something wonderful is coming!”
  • Love (The Second Candle): The second candle is all about love. It’s like a big, warm hug from family and friends. It reminds us to show kindness and care to everyone around us. This candle says, “Love is important, and we should share it.”
  • Joy (The Third Candle – Pink or Rose): The pink or rose candle is like a giggle or a belly laugh. It’s about being happy and having fun, just like playing with your favorite toys. This candle says, “Let’s be joyful and enjoy life!”
  • Peace (The Fourth Candle): The fourth candle is like a calm and quiet moment when everything feels just right. It reminds us to be calm and kind to others. This candle says, “Let’s bring peace and happiness to the world.”

A Special Tradition: These four candles help us get ready for a very special celebration, just like getting ready for a big party or a holiday with lots of presents. You light one candle each Sunday leading up to Christmas.

Evergreen Holly:

  • Holly: Holly stays green all year, even in winter. It’s like the hope and love that God gives us, which never goes away, even when things seem tough.
  • Red Berries: The red berries on the holly represent Jesus’ love for us. Just like how He came into the world to show us love and bring us happiness. So, when we see holly and its red berries at Christmas, it’s a beautiful reminder of God’s love, hope, and the joy that Jesus brings to our hearts.
