In 1747 Bishop Johannes de Watteville started the Christingle tradition in Germany. The Moravian Church then spread the tradition. In the UK, since the 1960s, Christingles have been used in Advent to share the Christmas message and raise funds for charity.
Symbolism of the Christingle
The word Christingle means 'Christ's Light'. Its decorations have special meanings-
- The orange represents the world
- The red ribbon Represents God’s love around the world and remembers the events of Easter
- The candle Represents Jesus the light of the world brings hope in the darkness
- The fruits Represents creation and the four seasons
