We have a wonderful Christmas tradition on our street. Dear Sister Rees across the street puts together these beautiful Luminarias. (They are paper sacks with sand and a candle in the bottom).
When we first started dad explained that we were lighting the way for Jesus Christ.
This is a wonderful tradition, I will definitely be starting it when I am settled in my own neighborhood in a few years. It's a great way to remember the true reason for the season.
"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
