@dega2010: It is very common in the Catholic religion to place the Advent wreath and candles on the dining room table. Each night when you sit down to eat, you light a candle and do a reading of the scriptures. You have three purple candles and one pink.
The first week you light week one’s purple candle. The first candle is considered Hope.
The second week you light week one’s and week two’s purple candle. The second candle is considered Love.
The third week you light week one and two’s candle, as well as week three’s pink candle. The third candle is considered Joy.
The fourth week you light week one, two and three’s candle, as well as week four’s purple candle. The fourth candle is considered Peace.
