The tradition of luminaries were only lit on Christmas Eve to symbolically guide the Holy Family on their journey. These decorative winter holiday lanterns are made with brown paper bags, which are filled partway with sand and a lit tea candle or small votive. Once lit and set, luminarias glow with a unique warmth that is unmatched throughout the year.

There are many great locations in St. Louis to view them on Christmas Eve.

4200 Flora Place in St. Louis MO, Between Tower Grove and Grand Ave. Their’s is a 1.9 mile walk which was full of families and good cheer last year.

Webster Woods Drive in Webster Groves MO. These two neighborhoods have been doing this for longer than I can remember.

Penrose Drive in St. Charles was aglow with luminaries. Located a little North of Duchesne Drive, off Westminister.

Lake Forest subdivision in St. Charles does luminaries that look beautiful to drive through!

Webster Groves: The intersection of Berry Road and W. Lockwood Ave, around Mary Queen of Peace parish, and the street called Hollywood Place, that runs behind the Church.
