November 25 – Festival of Candlelight

From the dimmest dawning of history, the people of the Northern Hemisphere believed that by lighting candles and fires in mid-winter they would coax the light to return.  Many cultures, and many religions, still use the lighting of candles as a special observance at this time of year. Our Festival of Candlelight is an annual event during which we honor some of these traditions by lighting the candles of Advent, Kwanza, Hanukkah, and Yule.  Worship Associates, UUCH children and youth.
