(Adult-Only Preview Night on November 9, 2012)
November 11 marks Martinmas, in honor of a Roman soldier elevated to sainthood for his selfless kindness. Martin is the patron saint of the poor, beggars, outcasts, and the homeless. Each year, Martin's deeds of goodness and acts of kindness are remembered with singing and a Festival of Lanterns. Children in kindergarten and the younger grades, together with teachers and families, carry handmade lanterns as they walk into the cold, dark evening. A story recognizing "the light" of another gives the children an experience of caring and sharing as we move toward the darkness of winter. (slideshow

At the Waldorf School of Atlanta, the Advent Garden is a celebration for children in kindergarten through second grade. Some classes have extended it in different forms further into the grades. As with so many festivals of early Winter, bringing light into the darkness is the essence of the Advent Garden. Each child's walk along the spiral path of evergreens is truly an experience to be held in reverence.
