This is the season of lights. It is a time when the days are
shorter and the nights are long. But, somehow, things seem
brighter. Shopping centers are bright with holiday lights.
Thousands of homes have single candles to light the way for
the Christ Child. Other thousands have candles burning to
commemorate the miracle of the oils of Hanukkah. Even the
stars in the winter sky seem brighter.
The most brilliant glow comes form the spirit of goodwill
that you live all year ‘round in the Cub Scout Promise and
Law of the Pack.
Let us all stand and repeat them together.
Chief Seattle suggests the Cubmaster says this opening.
Santa Clara County Council add this beginning –
Setting: Cub Scouts leave the room and march back in by
dens. Dim the room lights and have each Denner hold a
single candle or small flashlight as the dens return. When
the dens have reached their places, the Cubmaster then
begins the remarks.
