:: a simple Advent decoration ::

Week one begins with the first candle illuminated with a handmade tea-light. Little stars will be added everyday to each week's candle along with a symbolic treasure.

The gift of the light we shall thankfully take
But it shall not be alone for our sake,
The more we give light, the one to the other
It grows and gives light, and shines even farther
Until every heart, by love set aflame
In every place great joy shall proclaim:
Not long shall continue the darkness of year 
The light draws near.
