The origin and true meaning of Advent
With the beginning of the Advent season, peace returns - at least that is the actual meaning of this time. The word Advent means "arrival of Christ" and comes from Latin. The Advent season begins four weeks before Christmas. That is why we also light a candle on the Advent wreath every Sunday in Advent. The Advent wreath combines various Christian symbols. On the one hand, the light of the candles stands for the birth of Christ. On the other hand, the fir green symbolises hope and eternal life - just like the circular shape of the wreath.
Time for peace and contemplation
Originally, the time before Christmas was for fasting, introspection and a conscious escape from everyday life. Today, unfortunately, far too few people consciously take time to reflect and find peace. Instead, the pre-Christmas period is characterised by stress and hectic. Don't let this infect you. You can enjoy the Advent season with small rituals. For example, you can reflect on what you have experienced in the past year - and what you are grateful for.
The Advent season - perfect for sending loving greetings
Writing Advent greetings is also a wonderful way to enjoy the Advent season in its true sense. Consciously take time to write postcards to your loved ones. Light candles, drink a cup of Christmas tea and calmly think about the warm words you would like to send to your friends, colleagues and family.
"Happy Advent!" - Advent greeting ideas
