The Mexican custom of Luminarias symbolizes “Lighting the Way for Christ.” The custom is to line the sidewalks and /or driveways with paper bags/plastic milk jugs, glowing with flickering candles. Brian and?Janis Campbell, who reside at 301 Harrison Street in Emmetsburg, started the luminaria tradition in 1993. That year, luminarias lighted the way on Harrison Street, from First Street to Ninth Street. Harrison Street will be lighted again this year on Sunday, Dec. 21. The display will be lighted at 6:30 p.m. for that one night. “If everyone on Harrison Street lights their candles, it makes for a beautiful sight,” said Janis Campbell. “We want to thank all the residents on Harrison Street for participating. We hope that Dec. 21 will be another successful evening of making Harrison Street,” said the Campbells. “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”
