Magic Candle Opening
Posted On: 2020-11-05
(On the head table are arranged magic candles which should be lighted as the ceremony begins)
Narrator: Our candle stands tall, straight, and white. It burns and gives forth an inspiring light. As its light shines forth, you will see our colors blue and gold are regal as can be. As the blue appears, a thing of truth and loyalty, the sky so blue, steadfastness, and spirituality. When the gold shines forth, be of good cheer and think of happiness and sunlight so clear. As our candle's flame reaches toward the sky so blue, let us ask (our God) to give us the wisdom to lead each boy straight and true. Mold each of us to be like our candles, straight and tall, and be inspired to give to God and our country our all.
(To make "magic candles" use tall white candles. Drill 1/4" diameter holes every two inches down opposite sides of the candle. Place scraping of blue and gold crayons in the holes. Melt paraffin and whip with an egg beater. Cover candle with whipped paraffin using a fork to give the candle a rough decoration. As the white candle burns it will drip blue and gold wax decoratively down the side of the candle.)
