                  One tradition of the Advent wreath is to hang the wreath in the place that the Christmas tree will go.     
                        That way the four lights of Advent blossom into the numerous lights of Christmas.

                 A traditional Advent wreath is suspended horizontally from the ceiling.     
                 That way the wreath becomes like a hole to peak into heaven.

                  On the first Sunday of Advent, the first candle is the Prophecy Candle.     
                   The prophets, including Isaiah, foretold the birth of Jesus.

On the second Sunday of Advent, the second purple candle is lit.     
Some traditions call this the Bethlehem Candle, symbolizing Christ's manger.
