Shimmering Lights

You kind of wonder why we light lamps in festive times …  maybe because … they don’t hold back their brilliance or their warmth … maybe because …

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
