A different kind of Christmas (well, Advent) decoration in Saline

Driving from Milan on Saline-Milan Road, I spotted a unique Christmas decoration in one front lawn.

It was four "candles" in some bushes made to look like an Advent wreath.

It was something I hadn't seen before that big, and thought it would be worth the share.

The Advent wreath is useful by Catholics and some Protestants to mark the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It has four candles, one new one is lit each week until the week before Christmas, where all four burn.
