Let There Be Light...

I was looking around to see how others may have celebrated Memorial Day... and I came across this celebration in Hawaii.
It's called TORO NAGASHI. During the ceremony of Toro Nagashi, or "lantern offerings on the water," small paper lanterns containing lighted candles on a wooden or bamboo base are set afloat on the river or sea. In this memorial for the spirits of the dead many lanterns are floated upon the water, creating a fabulous sight.

A fabulous sight indeed.
