Absolutely. Anglican and Lutheran traditions have been celebrating Advent for centuries. Other Christian traditions have picked it up over the years, but the practice varies from congregation to congregation, depending on their polity and liturgical traditions.

    I am a Methodist and we definitely celebrate and study through Advent, using the wreath. It’s always a meaningful time.
