Advent Candles Handipt Taper Taper Set of 4 10"

Enjoy the simplicity of an unscented, fragrance free candle. Colonial Candle Handipt tapers are an excellent addition to an elegant dining experience. Made from the highest quality wax, our handipt tapers ensure a smooth, clean burning, virtually dripless candle that burns slowly and evenly. 

The four candles represent the four weeks of Advent. A tradition is that each week represents one thousand years, to sum to the 4,000 years from Adam and Eve until the Birth of the Savior. Three candles are purple and one is rose. The purple candles in particular symbolize the prayer, penance, and preparatory sacrifices and goods works undertaken at this time. The rose candle is lit on the third Sunday, Gaudete Sunday, when the priest also wears rose vestments at Mass; Gaudete Sunday is the Sunday of rejoicing, because the faithful have arrived at the midpoint of Advent, when their preparation is now half over and they are close to Christmas. The progressive lighting of the candles symbolizes the expectation and hope surrounding the coming of Jesus and the feast of Christmas.
