The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and grandchildren who left too soon.
This year’s event will be on Sunday, Dec. 9. As candles are lit at 7 p.m., local time, hundreds of thousands will commemorate the memory of children gone too soon.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the 22nd annual Worldwide Candle Lighting creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone.
TCF’s website, www.compassionatefriends.org, will host chat rooms and a message board for families to post tributes.
