The History of Christmas Luminaries
Many current customs using light or fire may be traced to early origins. The history and symbolism behind the present day usage of luminaries is both inspiring and beautiful.
Early Spanish families in the Southwest lighted three bonfires before their homes on Christmas Eve. Luminaries have become the substitutes for these early bonfires. But they have grown in numbers—from three to hundreds—and are used decoratively to outline driveways and grounds with a soft, radiant glow.
Now Scouts BSA Troop 320 of Fuquay-Varina is pleased to carry on this tradition through the annual sale of luminary kits. We appreciate your support in this effort. Not only are you helping Fuquay-Varina and surrounding areas glow with the spirit of the holidays, you are also showing your support for a truly worthwhile organization.
A kit of 10 luminaries is $10
