As I was walking around my house, I saw this candle. I decided to take a picture today because it reminds me of the different rituals performed by different religions. To me, it seems like a religious symbol since it was used in Eastern Christian ceremonial practices and other religious rituals. One example is that lighted candles must always be there during readings of the Gospel because it is interpreted as the “light which enlightens all”. Many times, candles are implemented in religious practices to emphasize the meaning conveyed by the ritual.
