Made with grape vines, which are traditionally used in summer solstice wreaths, and of course beautiful Australian bottle brush.
In Christian terms the advent period is about preparing for the coming of Christ, which can also be said as the coming of the light. In Northern Hemisphere Pagan terms, advent is also about preparing for the coming of the light, since this period is the lead up Winter Solstice, after which the days start getting longer again, as the sun begins its journey back.
However here in the Southern Hemisphere, we are perparing for Summer Solstice, which is about fertility and vitality and warmth and healing. But it's also the beginning of the darkness to come, as the days get shorter after midsummer, so our advent candles represent not only hope, joy, peace and love (as they are often said to in the church), but also the lengthening of the light leading up to the longest day, the Solstice (except, we'll have all the candles alight on the 25th not the 21st, but that's close enough, for our purposes).
