The most common Advent candle tradition involves four candles around the wreath. A new candle is lit on each of the four Sundays before Christmas. Each candle represents something different, although traditions vary. The first, second and fourth candles are purple; the third candle is rose-colored. The first candle symbolizes hope and is called the ‘Prophet’s Candle.’ The second candle represents faith and called ‘Bethlehem’s Candle.’ The third candle symbolizes joy and is called the ‘Shepherd’s Candle’. The fourth candle represents peace and is called the ‘Angel’s Candle.’
