I never knew some churches have a tradition of lighting a pink candle on the third Sunday in Advent. Apparently this is because the pink stands for joy and the third Sunday is known as ‘Gaudete (rejoice) Sunday’.

Hurrah – I really like pink and it is so nice to see it being used for something other than what the Pinkstinks campaign so aptly labels ‘sexualised, colour-coded, passive-princess crap’.

I found out about pink candles from this rather jolly film.
