Dis-Advent-Ageous

Being Christian, but not particularly Catholic, I had managed to not run into the concept of an Advent wreath before daisy_knotwise mentioned it to me earlier today as something she'd like to do. This apparently includes four candles.

"Candles?" I said apprehensively.

"Yes, four, one for each week of Advent. You know what Advent is, right?"

"I spent two years in an Episcopalian junior high school. I couldn't possibly not know about it."

"Ok. So I want an Advent wreath."

"I'm good with that, but can we get LED candles, because we've got two small children, one of whom could find a way to set the house on fire?"

"Three of the candles are purple. One is pink."

"Oh."

A long Google search later, I have come up completely empty on LED taper candles in purple and pink. I'm thinking there's a market there that someone's missing.

Apparently, if we were Episcopalian, all four candles could be white.

I don't think Gretchen is planning to convert.
