This year’s advent wreath at my moms turned out different and neat.  We do something a little non-traditional (though now it is a tradition).  Instead of the traditional christmas wreath with four candles in it, we take a big blue bowl, fill it with sand, then decorate the top with colourful dried herbs and flowers, and stick candles down into the sand.  This year the form that emerged reminded me more of a mandala.

Advent, Advent, ein Lichtlein brennt.  Erst eins, dann zwei, dann drei, dann vier.  Und dann steht das Christkindlein – vor – der – Tür.
