Candles of Advent

It`s the first sunday of advent, which means it`s time to light a candle. This is an old and cherished tradition in Norway. Both at home and at school, the lighting of a new advent candle is an important event. Each sunday stands for different things; Joy, Hope, Longing and peace; and as each candle is lit, the waiting time for christmas diminishes.
