I never did get around to making an actual Advent wreath this year, but I did fashion a makeshift one, so that we could still celebrate Advent. I used our Waldorf birthday ring as a base, with a simple greenery wreath around it. It's very pretty, but I do like the symbolism of the different colored candles. The beautiful red berries I got from a shopping center parking lot. They had this long row of Nandina, all dripping with red berries. So I went ahead and picked some. Not sure how ethical this is, but they look really pretty in our wreath. Is it wrong to pick flowers, berries, etc. from parking lots?
