Advent is the beginning of the church year, and means expectant waiting, and preparation for the nativity of Jesus at christmas. The word is an angliczised version of the Latin, Adventus, meaning coming.
In my home in Norway we always used to have one, and in the dark mornings having breakfast before school, we used to lit one candle, and I brought this tradition with me to Spain, and of this year of course I made a wreat, with a new design, using apples, wine corcs I have saved the whole autumn, pine branches, candles and a glass bowl.

|This option is good if you want to light one candle at the kitchen table during the week-|
|My new tablecloth, I got the fabric on Almuñeca's friday marked.|
