Waiting advent in Transylvania

Advent means 'Coming' in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world – in Szekelyland as well.

Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. No one is really sure when Advent was first celebrated but it dates back to at least 567 when monks were ordered to fast during December leading up to Christmas. In Szekelyland the traditions are viral and revitalize its culture. ​​​
