The third week we light a pink candle which sets at 2 o'clock. The candle of Joy. The color pink also represents Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
The fourth week another purple candle is lit. It sets at 4 o'clock. This candle represents John the Baptist.
These four colored candles are placed in a circle and surround a much taller candle. A white candle. This candle is lit on Christmas Eve and represents the birth of Jesus Christ. An eve when all come together to remember a birth in a manger.
Also the three purple candles symbolize fasting and repentance.
I pray that each and everyone has A Very Happy New Year and Good Health.
