Over the years the Christingle has evolved keeping the red ribbon and the candle but adding the orange, cloves and sometimes different fruit.
Our children enjoyed making their Christingles and happily took them home. Some wanted to light them and others simply wanted to eat the orange. It made me reflect upon the original purpose of the Christingle: that children are a joy and all bring happiness, light, hope and love.
Wishing all children everywhere a happy holiday.
