pink or Halloween wreath?

Today is 2nd Advent Sunday. Advent means “the arrival”, in reference to the date of birth of Christ, you count 4 sundays before Christmas eve. It is a tradition in the Nordic countries to light a candle and let it burn during the entire Sunday. The second Sunday you light 2 candles and so on.

Alfie’s assignement for the day is to create a wreath. Usually leaves, branches and berries were the main ingredients, but today people are getting so creative and have evolved to making wreath out of straws, mirrors, candies, Christmas balls, paper and so on.

Alfie was not very sure that his wreath would be chosen best wreath of the day, but he had fun making it.

Can you guess which one he made?
