Martinmas Celebration

I go with my bright little lantern,
my lantern is going with me.
In heaven the stars are shining
on earth shines my lantern with me.

We joined with five other families to walk with our lanterns, sing and hear songs of St Martin. I like Martinmas. We don't acknowledge all of the Steiner festivals, but I do think this one is quite special.

Sounds lovely, but I've never heard of Martinmas . What is it?

Claire said...

It's the festival to remember St Martin who wandered the river banks in Paris with his lantern and offered half of his cloak and food to the homeless he found there.
