How this all started


The idea of lighting Advent Windows first came to me after the summer of 2007, when much of the UK had experienced floods of biblical proportions - even our own village of Little Comberton had not escaped. Christmas was approaching; a Christmas that was not going to be easy for many families. But, before Christmas we have Advent - a time of preparation. I also associate light with Advent; the dark nights of winter relieved by the warm lights as we approach the Nativity.

You probably remember Advent Calendars which we start opening at the beginning of December - opening a new 'window' to show a religious text or poem or Christmas themed illustration or even a chocolate - always very popular! In Switzerland, in some villages  there is a custom of lighting windows in homes - just like a calendar.

So there it was! The spark of an idea! I would invite homes in Little Comberton to decorate and light a window.

We begin on Advent Sunday with the first lights and then each day another home is added until on Christmas Eve [or the night of the Village Carol Service] the star is lit outside St Peters Church in our village.

Many of the lights remain lit until January 6 - Twelfth Night when traditionally Christmas lights and decorations are taken down for another year. I'm hoping that some of the lights will remain lit until February 2 - CANDLEMAS - then we will appreciate the lighter nights as spring approaches.

I don't know how long it takes for something to become a tradition but this year will be the ELEVENTH year!
