Slowly and surely the days become shorter, darker and colder, even if the autumn of this year really means good with us and gives us magnificent and golden moments. Nevertheless, we slowly turn on the heating in the evening and light candles in the tea pot. The candle light in the evening reminds us quickly that the autumn is also over.

Light and darkness – these are two concepts, which are also the most famous festival in the autumn, on which many enthusiastically anticipate. The talk is of Halloween and on the subject we have prepared and published enough material for you, our readers. You can also read about the origins of the festival, but also about self-made decoration on our website.

Today, however, we would like to remind you of another festival in the autumn, which is especially pleasing to the children all year round. Shortly after the Feast of the Creeping Halloween, many lanterns are used to craft original lanterns in every school and kindergarten.

You can make lanterns very simply and can bring them together with existing materials

Every child would of course want to make his own lantern himself and take part proudly with the others at the lantern parade.

For many children this is the first encounter with the darkness. On the day of St.Martin the children are allowed to stay, join in and sing along. The excitement is great and when you giggle at the Halloween for”sweet or sour”, the mood is a bit more serious on Martin’s day. It is a festival to celebrate, but this festival takes place about 2 weeks later than Halloween, which means that the days have become even shorter, darker and probably even colder. On Martin’s Day, too, one is challenged to deal with his fears and overcome them.
