Hello, friends.

We like to make the Advet wreath part of every meal. We found a great solution to having the advent wreath take up so much space at our kitchen table. With this in mind, we bought an inexpensive (and one that blends with all styles) chandelier that is electric, but also has 5 spots for normal taper candles. We buy a wreath and then make one cut so we can slip it around the chain that hangs the light from the ceiling. Voila! An advent wreath. We put a white candle in the 5th spot. Then we are easily able to light the candles each night and sing "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel" instead of saying grace.

Another idea we used for many years was to put the wreath at the center of the table and place Joseph & Mary figurines with an empty crib in the center of the wreath. It helped the kids put it all together.
