By tradition, the beginning of the Christmas season in England always opens with a procession with candles in Wiltshire’s Salisbury Cathedral (formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary). On Saturday night, members of the cathedral choir carry lit candles during the annual procession “From Darkness to Light”. The service in the medieval cathedral begins in total darkness and silence, and, then, in the west wing of the building, the first candle is lit.
