Celebrating Martinmas at Vancouver Waldorf School serves as a reminder that each of us has a divine spark that we must ferry out into the world and share with others. The children hear the story of St. Martin, sing songs and, as darkness falls, venture out into the night with their lanterns, walking along a path lit with glowing luminaries, carefully carrying their lanterns in a mood of quiet reverence. This week, families in both Kindergarten and in Grades 1 & 2 gathered for Lantern Walks. Grade 3 families will gather on Sunday, November 17.
“There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.”~ Siddhartha Gautama, founder of Buddhism (563-483 B.C.)
