It was our Christingle Service at St Giles' Church yesterday afternoon. I took a lot of photographs but mostly of the children with their candles lit; unfortunately I am unable to publish these on a public website as they can be identified (sign of the times Sad). So I am uploading a close up of the pre-lit Christingles and, as V2, a giant Christingle made by one of our clergy and her husband!

Still very busy, as I suppose most people are this time of year. Had a sprinkling of snow this morning but it has all gone now, thank goodness! Back to work tomorrow!

Take care,

Carol

Both fine captures, Carol, with the crisp outlines in V 2 my favourite, but V 1 does fill the frame with colour.

Snap - I've uploaded oranges too - though not as Christingles
v2 for me Carol, although v1 is a lovely combination of colours and shapes
Its hard when you get super captures of children and cannot use them - I battle with this at school, at church with holiday clubs .....................and even with my grandchildren !!!!!

Political correctness gone mad regarding kid's photos - although I can to an extent understand why. I am lucky that my nieces and friend do not mind me uploading their children. Good shots though, and I love all the colours in V1. Moira

These do look yummy apart from candles stuck in orange flesh.
I've never heard of a Cristingle Service before. Is that a Church of England tradition?
Pity you can't use the children's photos. I bet they looked angelic.

KateGrinGrinGrin

Hi Kate (and any others who don't know the Christingle tradition). Here's a quick explanation:

A Christingle is a symbolic object, related to the pomander, used in the advent services of many Christian denominations. A Christingle consists of:

-an orange representing the world;
-a red ribbon around it representing the blood of Christ;
-dolly mixtures, dried fruits or sweets skewered on cocktail sticks pushed into the orange, representing the fruits of the earth and the four seasons;
and
-a lit candle pushed into the centre of the orange, representing Jesus Christ as the light of the world.
