Celebrations of Light

{A Wintertime Family eGuide}

The Celebrations of Light Family eGuide is a compilation of ideas and inspiration for creating memorable & meaningful wintertime traditions with your family. Creative and easy-to-follow, this guide is based on the "celebrations of light" I've been honoring with my own family for several years.
Throughout history, and across cultures & religions, people have sought to bring light to the dark days of winter with celebrations and traditions of warmth, love, and hope.
In this spirit, the five celebrations featured in the Celebrations of Light Family eGuide are designed to help you honor light and warmth with your family this winter. By uniting ancient, cross-cultural traditions with modern creativity, this guide will light a spark that can grow into meaningful wintertime traditions your family will treasure for years to come!

What's Included?
The Celebrations of Light Family eGuide is a full-color PDF you can read on your computer screen or tablet, or print out. The guide shares five celebrations of light, including:

The Winter Solstice ~ Advent Season
St. Nicholas Day ~ St. Lucia Day ~ The New Year

The suggestions for wintertime celebrations in this guide are not faith-based. Instead, they are intended to encourage warmth, meaning, and light in ways families of all different faiths can adopt and enjoy - from preparing our hearts & home as we await the advent - or coming - of the season; to recognizing the kind deeds of a real man, Saint Nicholas; to discovering the joy in serving others demonstrated by Saint Lucia; to honoring the power of nature on the Winter Solstice; to celebrating our wishes & dreams for the New Year.

In addition to a brief explanation of the holiday or festivity, each of the five celebrations in this wintertime eGuide offers:

  • a non-denominational ritual such as a Nature-Based Advent Celebration and a New Year's Spiral Walk
  • a meaningful & fun project or craft like a St. Nicholas Kind Deeds Stocking Craft and a St. Lucia-Inspired Table Wreath 
  • a warming, seasonal recipe such as a Winter Solstice Curried Root Vegetable Soup and Peppermint Chocolate Truffle Hot Cocoa
  • a "bright idea" for embracing the true meaning of the celebration & season like a Wishes in the Fire New Year's Tradition and Spread the Cheer Anonymous Giving idea
