1. Sunday in Advent...

...is always special, because it marks the start of the countdown to Christmas.


The first candle is burning.
In Norway we have a song with a verse for each candle and what it represents.

Lightening the first candle we are to think of "the small child laying in a manger".

(evening sun 3:30pm)

For this years advents"wreath" I choose four large cups which I filled with a little sand and four candles.
I added metall signs where I painted the numbers on and a little greenery.
They are placed on a square rustic metall plate on our dining table.
