Advent Wreath (Kids' Talk)

[Advent 1]

Focusing on one of the symbolic elements of the Advent Wreath, this week the candles. Start off noticing the elements of the wreath: circular, greenery, 4/5 candles.

Light a candle: what could it mean?
How many weeks until Christmas? We light an extra one each week
Why? As we get closer to Christmas.
Why? Jesus as the light of the world. Or, lighting our way to the Christ child is an alternative explanation.
