Advent season begins

On Sunday in many churches and homes, the Christmas season began with a symbolic lighting of the first candle on the Advent wreath.

Many churches began Advent on Sunday with a traditional hanging of the greens.

The Christian liturgical season of Advent – which begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and goes through Christmas Eve – has been viewed historically as a time of repentance and fasting, yet also as a time of joy as Christmas approaches.
