Advent is a time when we prepare for Jesus’ birth. At our church, we made wreaths with candles. We lit the first candle on December 3, but it was supposed to be the day before. There are four white candles and one purple candle.
At church, we also decorated the whole church. We had soup and bread and cookies. When we decorated the church, I helped to set up the Christmas tree. My friend, Graham, was there, too. He helped decorate. After we were done making the Christmas tree, we put lights all around it. Then we had to move it to the corner. We watched others put up wreaths and garland around the church. Then we went home.
When we lit the first candle, daddy let me do it.
