FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood-Scotch Plains Rotary concludes its luminary sale at the Fanwood Department of Public Works Building (Manfra Way off North Ave., across from the Fanwood Library) on Christmas Eve. 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Each luminary kit costs 75 cents apiece in all quantities and include paper bags, candles and sand.

Luminaries are traditionally put along the streets on Christmas Eve. A candle is nestled in sand at the bottom of a paper bag and placed along sidewalks to create a beautiful walkway. Some neighborhoods in the area get together and buy hundreds of kits for an amazing luminary display.
