Today is the fifth day of the Unitarian Universalist festival of light. Chalica is seven days long and runs from the first Monday in December through to Sunday. Each day represents a different Unitarian Principle, a chalice is lit each day and we say why we light the chalice for that day. Gift(s) can be given and received. Gifts can be made, bought, verbal, written, acts, and/or shared/personal celebrations. One can have seven different chalices or one common chalice
Friday: We light our chalice for the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.Give gift(s) to honor democracy
Examples:- help a political party- write your government- help a committee at church- host a dinner / party to celebrate democracy
