  1. Beautiful Picture.
    Saw three deer in Cary’s Woods this mornning. One stopped 10 yards in front of me. Wish I had my camera.

  2. Gorgeous photo! We drove through Eagle Rock last night and the deer were all along the memorial wall, just looking out. One walked up to our car when we slowed down. Unfortunately, I wish they were more leary of cars so they would not run and get hit.

  3. they are gathering for a Starling Service – play some upbeat music for them and they will dance and fly for you!

  4. I’m sorry to see that no one on the baristanet crew when down to Forest Ave. in Glen Ridge last night. I’d say the entire street with the exception of about 10 houses had lined luminaries up and down the street. It was a beautiful sight to anyone that saw it.

  5. Wow, Hiding, I hope you’re joking me. Once again going to show how anything Glen Ridge does, this website will criticize. The candles were surrounded by sand, it’s not as if they were just lit candles sitting in the grass. You seem to feel the need to take something that was beautiful and turn it around to make it seem bad.
    It was beautiful, and I can assure you everyone who saw it felt the same.

  7. Take one brown bag, fill with three cups pristine fine white sand. Insert votive candle. Light with long match.
    I am so pretty!

  8. You can get the sand from either Turks and Caicos or from Isla Mujeres.
    But if you can’t make it there, the
    Home Depot sells playground sand for commoners.

  9. On Isla Mujeres, did you buy your sands from the on-the-lam terrorist Luis Posada, who was hiding there circa 2004-2005?
    “Mr. Posada, a Cuban exile,…remains a prime suspect in the bombing of a Cuban commercial airliner that killed 73 people in 1976. He has admitted to plotting attacks that damaged tourist spots in Havana and killed an Italian visitor there in 1997. He was convicted in Panama in a 2000 bomb plot against Mr. Castro.”

  10. It’s called, wow Hiding, you are a raging idiot.
    They are white bags, folded at the top. They are filled about 3-4 inches with sand bought at your local gardening store. They have a small votive candle within the sand in the middle of the bag. The sand holds the bag down and prevents the candle from burning anything else.
    You are an ignorant idiot.

  11. you are buying the parts to make the luminaries – only in Glen Ridge- aren’t there any Martha Stewarts among you- no crafters- and you think I’m an idiot.
    What does the gardening center charge you for a luminary?

  12. Wow… that’s not only in Glen Ridge. You really are just ignorant. You don’t buy the whole luminary, you buy the sand from the gardening center. Shut up and get over it. All you and your little online friends do is try to find any opportunity to pick away at Glen Ridge. You are absolutely ridiculous. And you’re home at 2:00 in the daytime, do you really have nothing better to do with your life? Good night.

  13. Love the photo!!! Christmas I was stuck in Millville in a senior citizens complex visiting my aunt and uncle. While familial, it was a long day; each second assuming its own character.
    There were no luminaries in this complex; however, there were ordinary lights. Guess one must be in Glen Ridge to be illuminated; however, are these luminous residents enlightened?
