"Putting a candle in a window is an ancient practice. Throughout history, fire has meant warmth, security, food, and a barrier against the unsafe in an untamed wilderness. The glow from the family hearth has come to represent these very feelings.
In most cultures, a candle in the window was used to signal a family's loyalty to a loved one away traveling. To the traveler, it was a signal flare during bad weather and indicated someone was awake, awaiting their return. It also began to show a ready welcome of any traveler needing warmth and safety." **
Let our service people know that your home is their home, and someone there is thinking of them and waiting for their return.
