The Winter Spiral brings the experience of moving from darkness to light to the children in a simple way. At dusk, the children walk to the center of a spiral path of evergreens, carrying an unlit candle in a red apple. When they reach the center of the spiral, there is a single burning candle, from which they light their own. They then carefully place their candle down on the path as they walk back out. The festival begins in darkness and ends brightly lit by the many candles. We have a moment to sit in silence together before we leave. Winter Spiral is a faculty-led event.
