These types of Advent wreaths are the most popular. They are made either from real or sometimes from artificial materials. They look very authentic and come closest to the spirit and feeling that we associate with Christmas.
The advent wreath is also very popular because it looks outside. So it is not like the Christmas tree, which can basically be enjoyed indoors in the apartment. The importance of the homemade Advent wreath would be all the greater. Because one shows how it is also fitting for Christmas that one likes to give the other, partly strange and unknown people from one's own attention. For people who are religious, this is a way to show their belonging to Advent.

The meaning of the advent wreath goes beyond the Christian. The round shape is a universal symbol of infinity and the merging cycles.
What is the advent wreath made of?
There should be at least two plants in the advent wreath
It almost always consists of two different types of plants, the branches of which are bound together. It has to do with the double nature of Jesus – the divine and the human.
Inside, the wreath can also be made of other materials. In addition, candles also belong to the advent wreath in this case. It actually symbolizes people somewhere. They stand for the light that we should be for our fellow human beings here on earth. The number you should take is four. Each individual candle stands for one week during the Advent season. One of the candles should be lit every Sunday.
The right place for the advent wreath
There are many options for setting up the advent wreath
According to tradition, this is on the door, as I said. But not really. The advent wreath should rather be over the door. So it will hang over your heads. Furthermore, it is not thrown permanently by the movement of the door when opening and closing. Indoors, it belongs on the table, the chest of drawers or on the shelf. You could also equip the veranda with an advent wreath in your city apartment. In this way you also illuminate the next environment in which you live.
The colors of the candles are also not accidental. You have purple candles that symbolize the incarnation of Adam and Eve. In the second week you should light a green candle. It stands for nature and renewal, for God's hope and promise. It also means Abram. The red candle represents David and his promise. The white candle stands for all the joyful messages of God, who promises to save us.
The colors are also very important for the Advent wreath
Well, if you know the meaning of the advent wreath, be careful with decorating. You could also opt for unconventional models. But don't leave the symbolism and tradition aside. Because they have contributed to the fact that this festival has continued to this day.
