I invented Candletime three years ago as a buffer between Halloween and Thanksgiving so no one has to allow Christmas to sneak into that space. (I, personally, like to celebrate Candletime while also prepping for Advent and Christmas.) It’s a “holiday” everyone can celebrate and feel good about celebrating.
The rules are simple:
1. Candletime runs from November 1 through the night before American Thanksgiving (November 23 this year).
2. To celebrate, when you come home in the evening, light as many candles as you’d like to to make your living space feel sparkly and cozy.
3. Take some time to sit and enjoy the candles, and enjoy a beverage of your choice, such as hot cocoa, wine, beer, cider, mulled wine, hot cider, tea, coffee, Irish coffee, Bailey’s, or milk.
Who’s in? We start tomorrow night, but you can jump in whenever you’re ready.
