The cathedral also played host to the annual Christingle service, where children were given a special ‘Christingle Candle.’ The candle is made of An orange, representing the world, a candle pushed into the centre of the orange, then lit, representing Jesus Christ as Light of the World, a red ribbon wrapped around the orange or a paper frill around the candle, representing the blood of Christ and sweets, representing the four seasons.
