Waldorf Advent Walk

Last night was the advent walk for Ava and Presley, both 5 years old. Tonite it will be Kobain and Bella's turn to light their candle in this touching ceremony.
During the Christmas Season children in Waldorf schools walk the Advent Spiral. It is done in Silence, save for the harp playing softly. The center is lit with one candle. The children walk the spiral, one by one, lighting their candle in the center, than walk out, placing their lit candle along the path to provide light for other to walk. What starts as darkness gradually becomes more and more illuminated. It is so beautiful and touching.

What a beautiful event. It looks like something that the girls will remember always (I know that YOU will!)
