What is Advent Sunday?
Advent Sunday, also called the First Sunday of Advent or First Advent Sunday, among the Western Christian Churches, is the first day of the liturgical year and the start of the season of Advent. In Lutheran, Anglican, and Methodist churches the celebrant wears violet-coloured or blue vestments on this day, and the first violet or blue Advent candle is lit at Mass. In the Church of Sweden, a Lutheran national Church, the Liturgical colour is specifically white: the motivation is that the day is a joyful feast (the colour is changed to blue, the traditional colour for Advent in Scandinavia, orif the church does not possess blue vestmentsviolet after 6 p.m.). Zechariah 9:910 and Matthew 21:19 are always read in the service, and the symbolism of the day is that Christ enters the church. wikipedia
Advent Sunday has always been observed annually on the fourth Sunday prior to Christmas Day.
