Winter Spiral-2018

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!
