Lanterns

Laterne, Laterne
Sonne, Mond und Sterne
Brenne auf, mein Licht,
Brenne auf, mein Licht
Aber nur meine liebe Laterne nicht.


In Germany around November 11 children celebrate a lantern festival by walking at dusk with their lantern and singing songs. So this beautiful lantern reminded me of this fun event.
 This would be a fun event at the retreat. I might just in cooperate it into the October Halloween Pumpkin Hunt. More about this later, but it should be fun searching for pumpkins looking in the dark just using your lanterns.
