Traditionally, the eldest daughter in each family (that would be me!) participates in a ceremony in which she walks and sings with a procession of women, each wearing a crown of candles and carrying a candle in her hands, symbolizing the bringing of light into darkness. This is my take on the holiday. I took this self-portrait on Day 39 of my 365 Days project. (See the rest of my project in my flickr set.)
At this hectic time of year, when the days are dark and short and busy, it can be difficult to "see things clearly"; I'd like to take a moment today to wish everyone light and love this holiday season.
