During the era for the medieval times, Advent Wreath, a round shaped wreath with 4 colored candles, signifies the preparation for the coming of the child Jesus has come and this preparation, builds up the anticipation for the coming of the savior Jesus Christ. When the Advent season will come, you will be able to observe that you and those people around you will be able to make this celebration and the birth of Jesus more meaningful with the help of Advent devotionals, the Bible, and having to light the candles and knowing what each candle denotes.
For most of the Advent Devotionals, the use of the Advent wreath play a big role in the celebration for the coming of the birth of the child Jesus and this is represented by the candles aligned along the wreath. To some countries, each candle represents something else but for most countries, especially the Catholic dominated countries, it is believed that this candles represent love, joy, peace and hope.
