First Sunday in Advent
Start Date: 11/30/2014 All Day
End Date: 11/30/2014

Event Description:
Roman Catholic and Protestant Christian holyday: Advent is a month of reflection that precedes Christmas, which commemorates the arrival of Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago and anticipates the Second Coming. One candle is lit each Sunday during Advent, reminding Christians of hope, peace, love and joy. Purple, the color of penitence, fasting, and royalty, is associated with Advent. Some Christians adorn their doors with Advent wreaths and give their children Advent calendars with chocolate that count down to Christmas.[i]
