Light the Night
Here ye, here ye! "Light The Night" will go live on the sidewalks of Merchantville on Thursday, December 24th, at 7:00 p.m. This is a night when we can all come together as a community in unity, love, and light during these difficult times. On this evening, residents will line their curbs with luminaras - brown paper luminary bags - setting the streets of Merchantville alight at seven o'clock in support of our fellow neighbors, in memory of those lost during this pandemic and in tribute those family members we cannot be with during the holidays. Resident John Reeve circulated this idea on social media about two weeks ago and it's quickly gained momentum. ,He's put an instructional "how to" video together to assist everyone in making their luminarias and, answer your questions on the event Facebook page. If you're curious about how many luminaria bags you can make with a 50 pound bag of sand the answer is 70 - using one cup of sand in each. To determine how many brown lunch bags and votives to get, please remember that luminaria" should be spaced 3 feet apart so, if your property is 60 feet wide, want to buy and make 20 luminaria. Get in the spirit on December 24th!
