Description
The Advent wreath, or Advent crown, is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar of the Western church. It is usually a horizontal evergreen wreath with four candles. Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent, the lighting of a candle can be accompanied by a Bible reading and prayers. An additional candle is lit during each subsequent week until, by the last Sunday before Christmas, all four candles are lit. Some Advent wreaths include a fifth, "Christ" candle which can be lit at Christmas. The custom is observed both in family settings and at public church services. La corona de adviento es una tradición cristiana que simboliza el transcurso de las cuatro semanas de adviento. Consiste en una corona de ramas (generalmente de pino o abeto) con cuatro (o en ocasiones cinco) velas. Comenzando el primer domingo de adviento, el encendido de una vela puede acompañarse de la lectura de la Biblia y oraciones. Durante las siguientes tres semanas se encienden el resto de las velas hasta que la semana anterior a Navidad las cuatro velas están encendidas. Algunas coronas de adviento incluyen una quinta vela, la "vela de Cristo", que se enciende en Navidad. Esta tradición se observa tanto familiarmente como en los servicios religiosos.
