The underlying theme of bringing light into the darkest moment and place to usher the world into a new era of light is common among most of these observances across cultures.
The flagpole base at the former Washington High School became a makeshift altar for this event, and the sky was turning from a beautiful pink sunset into a star- and moon-lit night sky. We also had a symbolic "exorcism" using the traditional Japanese setsubun custom of throwing beans to chase out the evil.
The event concluded with a small procession from the Washington High to the Occupy headquarters, the Che Room.
Thanks Kathryn and Amanda for putting this together!
