Do you have your purple and pink candles yet? What about an advent calendar?

Can't tell you how many years we've had to order our candles last minute and they arrived late.

I should check! If not, a local Christian store carries them. Do you put new ones in your Advent wreath every year? I just replace them once they get too short to use anymore. LOL

We usually have to replace them every year. We keep lighting the Advent wreath and the Christmas candle through the Christmas Season, mainly because they would get lost or broken if we tried saving them so might as well burn 'em up! We live 3 hours from the nearest Catholic book store, but even if they were right next door... I'd probably still forget.

I don't have candles . I do have advent calendars, I try to have 4, (for the kids to all get to open one), but every year I end up with 3, next year I'm sure I'll finally get 4, but I'll need 5!
