December is here. Evening comes early and we are beginning to be enveloped in more hours of darkness. This Sunday is the first day of Advent and the fourth day of Chanukah. While they are vastly different times of commemoration they each hold rituals that involve the lighting of candles. In our Unitarian Universalist faith tradition we begin our gatherings with the lighting of a flame. This first Sunday of the winter holiday season we reflected on these symbols of light.
