- Lighting Advent candles is a wonderful Christmas family tradition to celebrate the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love of the season. Advent candle lighting starts on the Sunday four weekends prior to Christmas. Each Sunday, a different Advent candle is lit. Traditionally the color order of lighting is: weeks 1,2 and 4 are purple candles and the 3rd week the pink candle is lit. The Taper candlestick burn time is approximately 1 inch per hour.
