Annual Lantern Walk

 17 May
 City Park: Launceston
 43 Tamar Street - 7250 - Launceston - Australia
 Rainbow Garden - Steiner Playgroup
The Lantern Walk will be held this year on Sunday May 17th at City Park. We will meet at the Conservatorium steps at 5pm. Children will each light a home-made lantern with a small tea-light inside, symbolically taking the last light of the day into the night. Children and their families will then walk in a procession around the park singing a special and well-loved song within the German Steiner tradition; I walk with my little lantern My lantern, myself and I Above, the stars are all shining Below, we're stars in the sky The moon does shine The cats meow Rabimmel, Rabummel, Rabumm. If you wish to learn the tune to this song, please visit; (this is a German version but the tune is the same) The Lantern walk welcomes the shorter, darker days to come and celebrates sharing warmth and light in the community. Traditionally, the Lantern Walk celebrates Saint Martin of Tours, a Roman Soldier who became a monk. The most famous legend of his life is that he once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the beggar from dying. Please dress your children warmly, bring a lantern, a tea light and matches, your singing voices, ginger biscuits, apple cider or a thermos of tea and cups. Please invite your friends!
