First Sunday of Advent

The commencement of the liturgical year and the initiation of the Advent season occur on the First Sunday of Advent. Across the four Sundays of Advent, distinct themes of hope, peace, joy, and love are observed. In some customs, individuals light a candle on an Advent wreath each Sunday, with each candle representing a different theme. The first candle, kindled on the inaugural Sunday, symbolizes hope.
