This traditional centerpieces apparently originated in Scandinavia. During the shortest days of the year, people lighted candles on a wheel and prayed to the god of light that he would turn the wheel of the earth’s orbit to the sun again and lengthen the days. Today, an advent wreath mostly sets the mood: One candle is lit each Sunday before Christmas, as a countdown to the celebrations.
Here’s a selection of contemporary candleholders you could decorate with pine cones, branches of evergreen, baubles and other ornaments to create a festive advent wreath.
