Many different variations and interpretations of Advent customs exist today, depending on the denomination and the type of service being observed. The following symbols and customs provide a general overview only and do not represent an exhaustive resource for all Christian traditions.
Some Christians choose to incorporate Advent activities into their family holiday traditions, even when their church does not formally recognise a season of Advent. They do this as a way of keeping Christ at the centre of their Christmas celebrations. Some of the customs and symbols are: Advent Wreath, Jesse Tree, Christmas Tree, Crib, Advent Priest Clothing for Liturgy, etc.
