Orange Lanterns on the feast of Epiphany
|A very old Egyptian Tradition was to create lanterns out of oranges on the feast of Epiphany.
Children in the Egyptian countryside put candles inside hollow oranges and use them as lanterns. A symbol that the baptized receives the light of the Holy Spirit. Also by applying pressure on the crust of an orange comes out an oily substance, which symbolizes the oil of chrism, which is applied to the person after baptism or to get a quick tan for the 45th president.
