Each November, a Lantern Walk is held commemorating St. Martin’s Day or Martinmas, a festival of inner light in the outer darkness of the approaching winter. The children make their own lanterns which are symbols of their own individual light. On a cold, dark evening, children gather along with their families and teachers to walk and sing under the stars with their glimmering lanterns held high. Children carefully carry their lanterns in a mood of quiet reverence. Following the walk, everyone is greeted by a warm fire and a story told by a faculty member.
