In some places, this day is known as “Gaudete” Sunday and rose-coloured vestments are worn. A Christmas cre?che may be erected in the church for Advent 4, but hopefully not before 17 December when the Advent readings and prayers begin to focus on the Christmas story. The image of the Child is not placed in the cre?che until immediately before, or at the end of, the rst service of Christmas on 24 December.
