99. Hand Rolled Candles

On St. Lucia Day we rolled candles from beeswax sheets. While we mostly focused on St. Herman of Alaska on December 13, the candle activity seemed very fitting for St. Lucia Day (as well as for his recent bee obsession)! I was surprised at how much my son enjoyed it. He rolled numerous candles; all I did was cut the sheets of wax and place the wick for him. We gave the candles to his friends at church as Nativity gifts. Orthodox families can always use candles for their prayer corners! The sheets seemed a bit pricey to me, but they actually made a lot and were almost comparable in price to purchasing beeswax candles for prayer.  This could also be a good activity for the Twelve Days of Christmas.
