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.
