Who observes Advent?

I don't have a wreath of my own. I think my mom may've had one a long time ago. Our church does the thing where they pick a family each time to light the candle. Don't all churches do that? My grandma is the hardcore Catholic with the Advent wreath. She's got the rest of the family covered.
Ohhh, I celebrate Advent! I'm German, and my mom was born in Germany, so I've celebrated Advent my entire life. I even still get the calendar . And I also have the wreath, and sing the Advent song in German as I light a candle, one more for each week. And today Saint Nicolaus came

What's the German song? I'd love to know it. We didn't learn that one.

Advent, Advent, ein Lichtlein brennt
Erst eins, dann zwei, dann drei, dann vier,
dann steht das Christkind vor der Tür!

I think I understand that song! Cute! Is it:

Advent, Advent, a little light shines
First one, then two, then three, the foor
then the Christ child is standing in the door!

I think German is such a wonderful language.

Yeah, that's pretty much the translation, but it's standing at the door, not in the door. ("Vor" means in front of.) I've never been in Germany during the Christmas season, except once when I was less than a year old, so I've never seen it, but I'm sure it's beautiful.

I don't think I've ever been to Darmstadt. My mother is from Hannover and that's where my grandparents live.
