Let There Be Light!

It's not necessarily a Minnesota thing but an Embarrass thing. Every year there is an ice candle festival in the town of Embarrass, MN. It is an old Finnish tradition to place candles in the cemetary on Christmas Eve to remember and honor loved ones who have passed- as well as to light up the darkest days of winter! We decided to try to make our own ice candles about a week ago. We didn't get them perfect, but we plan to keep on trying! Placed on our little balcony we hope to light them again tonight to celebrate our Saviour Jesus Christ- the light of the world! Our kids also hope they can help Santa find his way here in the midst of the blizzard.
