I'm currently a college freshman and would like to celebrate Advent when it gets here, but my university doesn't allow candles in the dorms. So I can't buy Advent candles. I was wondering if there are electric Advent candles that use a light bulb as the "flame".
Has anyone seen this or know where I could possibly get one.
Actually I've seen these poor representation for colored electric Advent Candles sets sold in Catholic religious supply stores and even used in some Parishes similar to the odd electric red Sanctuary lamps.
Surprisingly unknown to the average parishioner most Catholic parishes in a diocese have stiff building Insurance regulations where Votive paraffin candles themselves can be burned in proper receptacles. The same goes for Advent candles in proper five candle circular ring type holders designed specifically for Advent candles.
Five ring Advent candle sets of course have three violet/purple candles, one pink for Gaudete Sunday, Third Sunday of Advent and a larger white Christ Nativity candle for Christmas.
You can find electric Advent candle sets in almost any Christian religious store.
Paraffin Advent candle sets would be cheaper. :shrug:
