Our Christmas Eve Tradition

Christmas Eve is a special time in our family...

We all get together, have oysters and fish,
and burn a bayberry candle.

Every year for many generations a bayberry candle
is lit on Christmas Eve morning.

As tradition dictates the candle burns all 
day long until it has gone out.

Some years that means leaving the house while
it is still burning... to be safe the candle goes
into the empty bathtub while we are gone.

Most years however the bayberry candle burns right there
on the counter reminding us how lucky we are.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and 
a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
