Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony 2017
Excitement is building as the 21st annual Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony approaches for 2017. Family and friends around the globe will unite as they light candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause.
As candles are lit at 7 pm local time, December 10th a virtual wave of light will be created as hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious and political boundaries.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from the compassionate friends, creates a virtual 24 hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone.
Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
Every year you are invited to post a message in the remembrance book which will be available, during the event, at TCF’s national website. All allied bereavement organizations, churches, funeral homes, hospices and formal and informal bereavement groups are invited to join in the December 10 th Worldwide Candle lighting at 7 pm.
