The lighting of homes for the Holiday Season may have come about from a number different beliefs. One is the lighting of a Yule Log during the Winter Solstice when families gather together during the longest nights of the year. Another is the act of placing a candle in a window to signal that the traveler, needing a place to stay when all the inns are full, can find a place of rest. Here are some lights from Bogota that may bring a warm glow to a dark Winters night.
