Hi! So my ten years of teaching have all been in Catholic school... but just this year I took a new position at a Christian school. It's a wonderful place. As usual I put up my Advent wreath and 3 purple and 1 pink candle..! The woman who teaches next door told me kindly that the purple candles have been changed to blue!!!!!! I did not know this!!! Any idea why? When I quickly google'd I learned that they did away with purple because purple is a sacred and solemn color of Lent... and that blue is a color for preparation and waiting, which the true meaning behind Advent...! Or, I could have just beenmixing up my colors for the past 9 or so years!
