Two Shoes Tuesday’s prompt this week is
My mother had several traditions that were important to her.
One of them was the Christmas Wish Candle and Book.
It was a red pillar candle brought out on Thanksgiving Day
and stayed on a table in the living room until New Years Day.
Everyone who came to the house during that time was invited to
light the candle, make a wish, blow the candle out, and sign the book.
And I mean everyone.
Friends, family, milkman, mailman, repairmen, and delivery people…
Some years there were pages of names and some years only a few.
I don’t know what happened to the Wish Candle and Book.
If I had a Wish Candle I would wish to have Ma’s Wish Book.
