Christmas Alphabet: C is for Candles

November 28, 2011

Ball candles

C is for Candles glowing on the table & in the window, small lights reminding us of The Light Of The World born at Christmas.


On Christmas Eve, we place luminarias along the street & walkway up to our front door. They are still glowing when we return from the late Christmas Eve service at church.

Tree Luminarias


Decide how many luminaries you will need, gather your supplies & take them outside to construct.

  • Paper Bags (I use white, but brown works just fine, too.)
  • Sand or Kitty Litter
  • Matches or Lighter
  • Votive Candles
    1. Open the bags.
    2. Pour about a cup of sand or litter into each bag.
    3. Press votive into sand/litter.
    4. Position the bag & very carefully light the votive. (You may need to fold the top of the bag down around the top to keep it open.)
