This weekend is the time of advent spirals round here. A spiral of greenery is laid out on the floor and a big candle is left burning in the middle. One by one children enter to light their little candle, held in an apple, from the large one. Then they place their lit candle somewhere on the spiral. Afterwards adults can light a candle too if they wish. The lighting of the candles is accompanied by music and singing and gradually the whole room fills with light. We look forward to the coming of the Light which overcometh the darkness !
