THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT WE PUT OUR ADVENT WREATH
IN THE CENTER OF OUR DINNER TABLE. EACH NIGHT UNTIL
CHRISTMAS, WE LIGHT THE CANDLES (ONE THE FIRST WEEK,
TWO THE SECOND, ETC.) BEFORE DINNER AND SING THE
FIRST VERSE OF THE SONG "O COME, O COME, IMMANUEL."
THEN WE SAY GRACE. WE LEAVE THE CANDLES LIGHTED ALL
DURING THE MEAL.
