Let Your Light Shine

"Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that's been our unifying cry, 'More light.'  Sunlight.  Torchlight.  Candlelight.  Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators.  Big floods for the night games at Soldier's Field.  Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we're supposed to be asleep.  Light is more than watts and foot candles.  Light is metaphor.  Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light."   - Diane Frolov &Andrew Schneider 

There all kinds of ways, literally and metaphorically, to light our paths, but the timeless image of the lantern, its flame guarded against air's movement, its flickering belying the strength of its ability to bestow light, sticks with us. Sold in sets of two, these Coastal Christmas Lanterns are wire screened, perfect for votive-sized candles, ready to light the path to your door, accent your Christmas celebration, or be filled with decorative shells and other bits of Coastal beauty. Standing over seven inches tall, they are small enough to be versatile, but big enough to give the gift of candlelight wherever they are placed.

“I have believed the best of every man. And find that to believe it is enough to make a bad man show him at his best, or even a good man swing his lantern higher.”  - William Butler Yeats
