Luminaries once again line Cotton Street on Christmas Eve

by Linda Hubbard on December 25, 2021

Thanks to the organizing efforts of Jim Schott, luminaries have lined Cotton Street in Menlo Park at least since 2013 [that year was the earliest InMenlo coverage].

There have been years that were dampened by rain and that was a concern yesterday. But the sprinkles stopped by early afternoon, allowing to the luminaries to glow beginning at dusk.

InMenlo contributing photographer Robb Most was there to capture the beauty joined by lots of walkers.

Love this! We should do this for the length of Woodland Avenue. Were they real tea light candles or battery powered?

Tea light, I think. Let me know if you’d like an introduction to the organizer

They were both. The real votives were much brighter and many were still burning 7 to 8 hours later

Lovely! It was very nice! Thank you very much to the organizers!
