#332 first advent

332/365 first advent, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

The count-down for Christmas began today. It’s the first advent. For us, advent (from Latin meaning ‘coming’) time starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day.

The tradition in my family is to get out our old, battered wooden candle stick, for four candles. One candle is lit on the first advent Sunday, two on the second and so on. Our neighbours also put their Christmas lights up today – that’s the bokeh in the background.
