Day of the Little Candles-Continuing the Tradition

Several years ago we became aware of a lovely Colombian Tradition: the Day of the Little Candles.  On the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception lanterns are set out with candles inside.  The lanterns often depict Our Blessed Mother.  Three years ago the Children's Rosary participated for the first time in this tradition by making lanterns.  We have continued this tradition and again set out lanterns Sunday evening.  There was a strong wind so occasionally our lanterns would take flight but  it was beautiful to see them arranged around Our Blessed Mother.  

For those of you who may like to participate next year we have posted step by step instructions of how to make these lanterns.
