In Him was life, and that life was the LIGHT OF ALL MANKIND.
The LIGHT SHINES in the darkness, and the darkness HAS NOT OVERCOME IT.
John 1: 4-5

What is a LUMINARY?
A luminary is a small paper lantern which is used at Christmas time by the Hispanic culture. It is used on Christmas Eve, and are placed outdoors on that night as a reminder that Christ, our Light, has come into the world. It is also a reminder that the light of Christ lives in the home of the user who wants to share that Light with all who see it.
