The third Sunday of Advent is known as the “Joyful Sunday”.  The pink candle cheers up a bit the darkness of the purple colour which signifies penance. Rejoice because the birth of Jesus is close-at-hand!

  • Light up the pink candle
  • Draw a balloon or the balloon template and attach a ribbon to it. On the ribbon write names of people and places that make you happy.
  • Thank God for these people and places that make you feel happy.
  •  Hang the balloon on the blue crepe paper that represents the sky.
