Holiday Question of the Day:

This drink is England’s oldest Christmas drink still made today. It is over 500 years old and its ingredient list includes roasted apples, spices and bread crumbs.

Answer to Yesterday’s Question: Rejoice, when advent was first started it was mainly a time of penance, much like lent, in order to spiritually prepare oneself for the coming of the Lord at Christmas. That is why purple is mostly used, the same as in Lent; however, the 3rd week was set aside as a time to rejoice at the coming of the Lord. Which is why there is a pink candle, and priest would wear rose colored vestments. (And in modern times often note that they are wearing rose and not pink, as if rose was a more manly color.)
