Window display in Marseilles showing Notre Dame de la Confession, green candles, and boat-shaped cookies called navettes. On Candlemas, the Festival of Light, celebrants bring the Dark Madonna from the crypt of the Basilica of St. Victor and, carrying green candles, they process to a bakery where they enjoy the navettes, recalling the journey of the three Marys and Sara.
