What does the "light of peace" signify?

True. It least Albert was there, he's aged a lot I think. Looking frail.

I had never heard of it either. Apparently it's an Austrian custom since 1986 to spread the light of peace from Bethlehem among people. An Austrian child lights the candle in Bethlehem, the light travels to Vienna and in the 3rd week of Advent it spreads its light to every town in Austria, and recently also to other European localities. In Belgium it were scouting groups who helped to spread the light that symbolizes peace, hope, tolerance and unity.

Thanks, Hannelore.

It'll be interesting to see whether it will now become common in Belgium too.
