The week, beginning December 6, is Chalica – a holiday just for UUs that focuses on living our principles every day. It is set at the beginning of December to give us a chance to pause and reflect on how we get the greatest meaning in our days, something that is often lost in the busy-ness of this time of year. You can be as simple or as elaborate as you’d like with this UU holiday – there are no rules! You can light a chalice at dinner or bedtime and ask, simply, “how did you put this principle into practice today?” Or you can go all-out with colored candles for each day, using readings or stories, and creating a family ritual that starts with a breakfast reminder and ends with a family worship in the evening. It’s totally up to you!
