It’s a light in the times of darkness, a little flicker of hope when we need it the most. When the flame of a Journey Candle is lit, we’re participating in a ritual that has endured for thousands of years. You don’t need to belong to any faith or traditions to partake in candle lighting. If you want to do something in memory of someone you love who is no longer with you, lighting a candle is a simple, easy way to feel peace and connection. For many, this is a way to celebrate the life of a loved one while also reflecting on your own memories.
