A long time ago, our neighborhood was known for beautiful illuminated Luminarias in front of our houses and in our common areas on the night before Christmas, December 24. This wonderful tradition died out basically due to bad weather on that day.
This year we are going to start reviving this tradition with a new and improved version of Luminarias that will use LED lights instead of candles.
Font Hill LIGHT CELEBRATION
Saturday, December 16
Here is all you need to know to participate.
Where to get the NEW and Improved Luminarias:
They can be purchased at our community Holiday Gathering on Saturday, December 9 (3pm – 5pm).
Location is by our community park.
If you cannot make the Holiday Gathering, please contact us via email using the Contact tab Form in the community website (http://fonthillcommunity.org/contact-us/).
The Kit includes: 12 cups + 12 lids + 12 LED lights + 12 anchors. All the cups have been perforated to facilitate the use of the anchors.
Anchors are necessary to hold the luminaria in place (in the ground) just in case there is wind.
Lids help enhance the illumination of the luminaria as well as keep the rain out.
New Luminaria Kit cost is $11, it includes 12 of all parts needed as described above.
If you already have the cups, then the kit cost is $8 (12 lids + 12 LED lights + 12 anchors)
For those of you wanting to use candles, please do so carefully.
We will be selling the candles we still have at the Holiday Gathering on December 9. Candles are $3 for 12.
Where to setup your Luminarias
If your front property has a sidewalk: Set your luminarias on the grass section along the street. Use the anchors to secure the luminaria to the grass area.
If your front property does not have a sidewalk: Set your luminarias along the edge of your front grass area along the street. Use the anchors to secure the luminarias to the grass.
The idea is to have luminarias along the road perimeter. If you have extra luminarias then you may use them to line up your driveways and other areas.
WHAT TIME to setup your Luminarias
LED light Luminarias: Set them out starting 3pm, just before dark and let them shine all night.
Remember LED batteries are good for 100 hours so these luminarias should last at least 5 years!
If you are using candles: Set them out just before dark.
