The Candles

I tend to lose these candles most years. And then I find them shortly after Christmas - like when I'm putting all the Christmas decorations away. This year they stayed on the shelf in the kitchen the whole year. Not surprising, though, when you consider how I don't clean house like I used to.

These are the Christmas Eve candles. Breakfast gets cooked for dinner, someone lights the candles and then all the lights get turned off. Dinner/breakfast is eaten by the light of the candles.

Just a tradition that has no magical story as to its beginnings but its a tradition that has stuck. I'll take it.
