Started by The Compassionate Friends Network this event takes place every second Sunday in December. That would be today.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift from TCF to the bereavement community, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lighting are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
We do it every year. We say a prayer for Lucas tonight we'll add "cupcake Bailey" and leave our candle on till bed time.
