A Lantern Walk

We went on the school lantern walk this evening.  The children have been working on their lanterns for a couple weeks now.  It was a perfect night for the walk.  It was cold and crisp but not too cold and no hint of wind.  I do believe all the candles stayed lit.  This was the biggest lantern walk I've witnessed.  There were probably 40+ lanterns bobbing across the field in the dark night.  It was spectacular.   We also just happened to meet St. Martin out there who helped a poor, cold beggar by cutting his cloak in half and sharing it with her.  This story really impressed the children as they've been hearing it in school for the last week.
