  • Advent Wreath [r]: A circle of interwoven, sometimes highly decorated evergreens with candles, used during the season of Advent in preparation for Christmas. The candles are lit on the four successive Sundays preceding Christmas Day, with a final, central candle being lit on Christmas Eve.

  • Epiphany [r]: Christian feast commemorating the visit of the magi to the infant Jesus. It marks the end of Christmastide. [e]
