We light two candles tonight

We light two candles tonight

Så tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede.
De står og skinner for seg selv
og oss som er til stede.
Så tenner vi tenner vi to lys i kveld,
to lys for håp og glede.

-Inger Hagerup-

We light two candles in the evening,
two candles of hope and joy.
They stand and shine for themselves
and our present.
We light two candles in the evening,
two candles of hope and joy.


joy in the season

  1. We lit two today, too. A beautiful little poem. Wish I could read the Norwegian!

  3. Your candles are absolutely beautiful. I would love to do an Advent wreath too if I could get hold of such a cool candle-holder!

  4. Do you light additional candles every night until Christmas? Such a lovely tradition!

  5. No, we light one candle each sunday before Christmas. The first sunday we light one candle, the next two and so on.
