Lovely and beautiful tradition...thanks for sharing this with us. You were creative and on topic for this weeks challenge.

God bless~
Very descriptive and informative; with a light, enjoyable touch. Thanks for sharing.
A well told story of an interesting celebration.

Well done.
This is so well written and interesting. I think this is a wonderful tradition to observe.

You used the topic creatively and your story flowed so well.

I think this one may do well this week. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent descriptions, I really caught a good visual. It is always good to share cultural rituals and ceremonies, they make for wonderful topics to write about. This is a smooth read and highly enjoyable. Can't wait to read your next entry!
That was beautifully written! I LOVED your imagery. "The reflections from the candle jump wildly on the shiny surface of the holder"; "there’s a sputtering sound and sweet-smelling candle smoke pirouettes into the air" - those were my favorites. I could see it so vividly.

Just beautiful. I too enjoy reading and learning of cultural traditions, especially those I am not as familiar with.
congrats. I knew this one would rank well with the judges.
You have such a command of words for someone so young. Actually, your work is quite profound regardless of your age. You really did a superb job of sharing with me this lovely worship time that you celebrate with your family. Congratulations on your well-deserved EC! Happy Dance!
Congratulations on your first place - you created a lovely atmosphere with words.
I really enjoyed this celebration from your young MC's perspective.
Well done.
