In the 18th century, governors often hosted a ball at some time during the twelve days of Christmas. On the highest occasions, lights might be put in the windows of the little tower or lantern (or "lanthorn" as it was called) that crowned the flat, balustrade roof. In celebration of this tradition, Colonial Williamsburg hosts an annual Grand Illumination Christmas procession past Historic Area buildings and homes. In their wake, classic architecture is gentled by the seemingly magical glow of candlelight beaming from every window.
