This is just a brief reminder to make sure you have Advent candles to go with the prayer activity in your Advent Activity Home Lesson. Of course you can buy them on Amazon, but as long as you have plenty of time, why don’t you go ahead and check your local Catholic bookstore first. (They will be grateful for your business and you’ll probably get a bunch of other faith-based gift ideas!)
If you’re lucky enough to have a Hobby Lobby in your area, I happen to think their 5″ Coach Candles are just about perfect. You can get purple and pink at any time of year, they are almost as elegant as tapers, but they always stand straight in the holders.
I’ve also had some success with finding pink and purple votive holders and just using white candles, but you’ll probably have to think about that in the summer when pastels are easier to find.
