Christingle 2014

A Christingle is a symbolic object used in the Advent services of many Christian denominations.

Christingle means 'Christ Light' and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the "Light of the World"

The Christingle usually consists of :

  • an orange — symbollising the World
  • a candle pushed into the top of the orange — symbollising Jesus as the Light of the World
  • a red ribbon around the orange or candle — symbollising the blood of Jesus
  • dried fruits and sweets on skewers pushed into the orange — symbollising the fruits of the earth and the four seasons.
