The Advent wreath symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent.  It
typically holds five candles.  During the season of Advent one candle on the
wreath is lit each Sunday until all of the candles, including the fifth candle (lit on
Christmas Day).
Purple has traditionally been the primary color of Advent, symbolizing
repentance and fasting. Purple is also the color of royalty, demonstrating the
anticipation and reception of the coming King celebrated during Advent. Today,
however, many churches have begun to use blue instead of purple, as a means
of distinguishing Advent from Lent.
Pink (or rose) is also one of the colors of Advent used during the third Sunday. It
represents joy or rejoicing and reveals a shift in the season away from
repentance and toward celebration.
White is the color of the center Advent candle, representing purity. Christ is the
sinless, spotless, pure Savior.
