Candlelight, Advent, Shabbat, Hanukkah & Other Service Supplies and Ideas

Updated on August 16, 2014

Candlelight Services for All Occasions

Candlelight services have been a part of my life since I was a child.  Whether it was for a Christmas program, New Year’s Eve Service, Wedding (my own), Hanukkah or other special events, I have always found them to be beautiful.

It is the time of the year where many will be holding traditional candlelight services for various occasions. On this site you will find the materials needed for whatever event you will be hosting that may involve the use of candles, banners, candle stands, advent, Shabbat, Hanukkah, and other accessories.

      We attend candle lit Christmas carols service at the beautiful cathedral in St Albans, which is situated near London. It's a long standing Christmas tradition. Beautiful. Thanks for this lens. It is beautiful.

      Events where unconditional love is prominent turn me into a blubbering, beautiful mess. I tend to stick to meditation with God by myself to avoid being overwhelmed. Light is so beautiful I have to keep the eyes closed sometimes. It seems I have to compartmentalize the inner state in order to function in the world. Lovely lens, blessed.

      That special hush of a candlelight service came to me here...and yes, I found the Light at a candlelight service as a child, I didn't go forward but the work was done in my heart and I later found out from my sister that she found the Light that night too....thank you for bringing back precious memories.....
