I thought that last year would be the end of the spiral; however, friends asked when I was hosting it. Thus, I continued the “tradition.” I love the spiral. My kids can take it or leave-although, they always have fun. We started celebrating with a winter spiral 4 years ago to celebrate the light in the world. Now, I feel that I am teaching how the kids not only how to find the light/good in situations/people, but also how to be the light and the good in situations/people.
As always, we started the night off with a walk down the drive lit up with luminaries. We then lit the candles in the spiral, as I told the story of the Lantern Prince. Next, we painted kindness rocks to place around the community. We ended the night with some goodies to munch on and of course, a game of tag.
I hope your holiday season is starting off well. Happy Winter Solstice!
