Advent Candles for Wreaths
Purple, Rose, and Sarum Blue Church Candles
No Advent wreath is complete without the candles. Each requires a minimum of 4: 3 purple and 1 rose. Some wreaths include a central holder for a fifth white candle. T.H. Stemper has Advent candle sets with rose pink, purple, white, and Sarum blue.
The Advent Wreath Tradition
Advent is the 40 day preparation leading up to the Nativity. To celebrate, a candle is lit on each Sunday leading up to Christmas. The candles are lit in a specific order:
- First Sunday of Advent: Purple
- Second Sunday of Advent: Purple
- Third Sunday of Advent: Rose (pink)
- Fourth Sunday of Advent: Purple
Sarum blue is an alternative for purple in some Christian churches. The Nativity itself is usually celebrated with red or gold candles.
ArtisanWax Advent candles are mostly white candles with wrapped pink and purple décor. Crafted of high-quality 51% beeswax, these candles are available in different heights to fit a variety of holders.
