Do your Christmas traditions involve fire?

When I was a child, it was my family’s tradition to attend our church’s Christmas Eve candlelit service.  On the way in, each member of the congregation would receive a small white candle, encircled by a paper rim.  When the time came, candles were lit one by one–each person sharing their light with the person next to them until the entire room was filled with lit candles flickering in unison.

Candlelight ServiceFor me, the night was riddled with concerns about dripping wax and flammable materials.  Even as a child, I understood that polyester and aerosol hairspray, while stylish for the times, were highly flammable.  I remember asking my dad things like “Will the wax drip on the carpet and chairs?” and “What if the paper rims on the candles catch fire?”  I couldn’t relax until after our final “Amens” were said and each little flame was extinguished.
