The last candle on the Advent Wreath. The Christ candle is lit on Christmas eve. It is the last day of waiting (advent) for Christ's birth.
I hope the candle of 'advent' is lit in your heart as we await Christ's second coming as well. The first time he came as a baby in a manger the second time he comes in power and strength. Are you waiting... are you ready... blessings to you.

A family speaker might say: “As we light the Christ candle, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and rejoice in His coming into our lives. Jesus is our HOPE, our PEACE, our JOY, our LOVE. Because of these truths, we can claim the promise of John 3:16. “Whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” Welcome to our hearts, Lord Jesus. Please keep our faith in You strong. Amen
