I've never celebrated St. Martin's Tag until this year when painstaking efforts were made to create lanterns for a group of 6-7 year olds. Jared thought I was crazy, and looking back...he was right. I won't be doing that again, but I did love the way they turned out! And when we walked around the block at night at our place, then sang for Lukas' little friend with our lanterns, it was memorable.
And believe you me, after you see the "tutorial" from Hades below, you'll see why I kept the sucker to use every.single.year. of his childhood.
