Annual Winter Solstice - Kaleva Luminary Tradition

Winter Solstice

December 21, 2021


We as a community celebrate the Finnish tradition of lighting candles for those who have passed by placing luminaries next to each grave in the Maple Grove Township Cemetery in the village of Kaleva on December 21st.  This event is reminiscent of the Finnish tradition of lighting candles on Christmas Eve for fallen friends or family. Following the lighting, people gather by the fire for a prayer and Christmas carols.  Bethany Lutheran Church also offers soup and bread to nourish the workers at 5:30 pm at the church.

All Log Cabin Concerts are located at the Log Cabin Theater on Walta & Panu Streets.
