Lighting "The Blue"
Posted 27 January 2008 - 12:07 AM
The regulars keep a blue candle on hand just for this purpose -- it of course, also can be a white candle in a blue glass holder, or a blue column candle, etc. Members light the blue candle at their own house, usually for 2 or 3 days for the member (not when they aren't home or thru the night but at least for 2 or 3 hours) although if it is a special request some say they will light it every day until someone is better if it is a real crisis.
Do not know if anyone here would be interested in this little custom but it seems a thoughtful little thing to do among Net friends who are in a little community of sorts.
What does everyone else think?

Over the next month we can look for something blue and just store it with our candle things. Then if someone posts that they or someone they are close to is not doing so well we can just offer to "send them some Blue." Because some of you will be real busy with the tart swaps, this should just be easy to do and not interfere with your other "burning issues."
Thanks again for responding.

Great idea, Wildfire. Would you mind finding the post where Boogie mentions her dad's illness and tell her we're starting some blue for her, please -- since you were thoughtful enough to think of her. You could tell her to reference "Hodge Podge" if she needs to find out what The Blue is all about. I do not have a blue candle yet but I just received some blue melts and I can use them in my solid blue tartwarmer. Will burn it all day tomorrow for Boogie's dad. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness Wildfire.
