Advent typically represents the four Sundays preceding Christmas in the Christian faith. In every form, it's a countdown to Christmas and begins a season of preparation and anticipation of holiday celebrations. Much of advent revolves around light. Advent candles are a popular way in Scandinavia to celebrate advent and many people use sets of four candles, one for each week. Read about Scandinavian Christmas traditions on our Advent blog.
