I unpacked amm’s advent candelabra this year. I remember lighting each candle, one by one each Sunday. And loved when we could light the centre candle, because that meant it was Christmas Eve.

I am loosely following the ways of the advent candles. The candle I have in the middle is lit each time, because it smells like peppermint and it’s my favourite. And I light the candles whenever I feel like it. But only lighting as many Sundays as we have had in the month.

I love the way the candles look with all the lights out.
