Day 20: Advent Calendar for ME

‘Advent Wreath’

Today, we add a ring of burning candles to our calendar scene to signify the Christian tradition of the Advent wreath. The Advent wreath is usually an evergreen wreath with four or five candles. On each Sunday during Advent a candle is lit to mark its passage, with the final one being lit on Christmas Day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Thanks to Claire Waterfield’s photo from the ‘Let’s Get Snapping for ME’ competition. Claire’s is the twentieth photo to be magically transformed into our Advent Calendar.

You can download today’s advent image for your computer or mobile device wallpaper by clicking here. We have uploaded a number of versions in different sizes to suit various screen sizes. Each is labelled with an aspect ratio. (To find out the aspect ratio of your device divide the screen resolution width by height. We’ve made all images the biggest size possible to cater for the maximum number of devices. If the image is too large it can be easily shrunk to size. If your device’s aspect ratio doesn’t match
those uploaded choose the nearest one.) If you’d rather print off today’s picture you can download it by clicking here.

Come back tomorrow for more festive fun and see what Day 21 has in store!
