It's one of the most traditional Christmas sights. A simple candle in the windows of Jersey Shore houses. Here's why you should add a blue one.

While the Christmas season is a joyous time, it is also a difficult time for those dealing with loss. Especially those families who lost a loved one in law enforcement.

Blue candles are used to memorialize fallen officers and K9s. You'll often see thin blue lines on patches or blue ribbons.

Point Facebook fan Jim Nowacki had the great idea to add a blue candle to your window this holiday season. Not only will it show you support the men and women who keep us safe, but it will also provide comfort to those who are missing a loved one who gave their lives in the line of duty.


Merry Christmas to all, and thank you to all of our law enforcement officers and K9s.
