Eaglebrook's 92nd Candlelighting
The 92nd Candlelighting was held in Gibbs Dining Hall on December 18. The annual event is Eaglebrook’s oldest and most beloved traditions. The tradition is a time to bring light into the darkness and embrace the people around you.
Once lights were turned down, Head of School, Mr. Chase spoke about the tradition of Candlelighting. When he says the words, “As one light lights another, nor grows less, so nobleness enkindles nobleness,” everyone in the room begins singing “Adeste Fideles” and all Sixth Form students move to the front of the room to light their candles. As they make their way back to their tables to light the other students’ and faculty candles there, the dining hall begins to fill with a ray of light.
