Luminary Night is a magical night in Norwood, and for new residents unfamiliar with this inspirational event, it is a must on the holiday calendar. The Circle of Hope Foundation's Enchanting Luminary Night will be held on Saturday, December 2, on Norwood's Town Common. Luminaries will be lit at 5 p.m., and throughout the evening, visitors stroll through the walkways in search for their personal messages while taking a moment to absorb the spirit of the season. Rain date, Sunday, December 3.
For the past 15 years, luminaries have lit up the Town Common walkways in remembrance of their lost loves ones and in support of their neighbors who are battling a medical tragedy. The luminary bags are engraved with an individual name, message, prayer or date as a symbol of Life, Hope, the Season or in Remembrance of others.
"Every candle that is lit is helping someone in Norwood," Kennedy said. "You don't know when you light that candle who you are helping."
Luminary bags are $5 each and can be purchased from the Norwood Civic Center, Nahatan St., or any foundation board member, by calling 781-762-3549, mailing your check and message to, The Circle of Hope Foundation, 24 Myrtle Street, Norwood MA 02062, or in person the night of the event.
