We just marked the Autumnal Equinox–the first day of a new season. But really we’ve been losing light and moving into darkness since the Solstice.
Autumn is the perfect season to welcome a little light. Candle feels so much bigger than the light they shed. They warm our spaces; they call us near. Beeswax candles give an especially rich light and delicate scent. Here are a few ways to add a little light:
- You can use the coloring sheet from yesterday’s feast celebration and paste it onto a vigil candle from the grocery store.
- You can make these lanterns for St Martin’s Day on November 12th.
- You can pick up a box of tapers and light one each night at dinner before the blessing.
These simple shifts bring awareness and attention–the perfect conditions for wonder!
