The Advent Wreath

Today at church I made an Advent Wreath.
The circle of the wreath and the evergreen that make it up both signify God's endless mercy and undying love. I used three purple candles and one pink candle. The first candle is to be lit the first week of Advent (this week) and then an additional candle is lit each week until Christmas. The pink candle will be lit the third Sunday of Advent. I am in search of a larger white candle that will be added to the center of the wreath to be lit on Christmas Eve to signify the Light of Christ.
