The liturgical year

  • Advent [r]: The first season of the Christian year that lasts for four weeks and is marked by preparations for the celebration of Christmas. [e]
  • Advent Wreath [r]: A circle of interwoven, sometimes highly decorated evergreens with candles, used during the season of Advent in preparation for Christmas. The candles are lit on the four successive Sundays preceding Christmas Day, with a final, central candle being lit on Christmas Eve. The Advent Wreath began in Germany as a private observance in people's homes, but is now widely used in churches as well. [e]
  • Epiphany [r]: Christian feast commemorating the visit of the magi to the infant Jesus. It marks the end of Christmastide. [e]
