Event description

Description

Please reserve a space for each family member attending. Space is limited, and we need to know exactly how many people to prepare for.

This festival is open to our Waldorf community: alumni families, Parent/Child families, camp families, and friends of OSDS are warmly invited to share in a community Spiral of Light on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 5.30 PM.

As the outer darkness of winter approaches, there are many cultural and religious festivals of light. Each December, we join other Waldorf schools in creating such a seasonal festival: the Spiral of Light. In this garden of light, each community member over the age of three is invited to walk with an unlit candle along an inward spiraling garden path, which leads to a lighted candle in the center of the garden. After lighting his or her candle, one walks out of the garden along an outward spiraling path and places the lit candle along the way. As each adds a candle to the path it becomes an ever-growing lighted walkway. For both the children and the adults who are present, the spiral of light is an oasis of quiet and wonder.
