Why You Should Put a Blue Candle in Your Christmas Window
It's one of the most traditional Christmas sights. A simple candle in the windows of Jersey Shore houses. Maybe this year you can consider adding 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.
I noticed this year that it's been really hard to find Christmas lights anywhere. After poking around Amazon I found a set of 24 blue LED tea lights. They're only $12.99 and you can have them delivered as soon as the next day.
These lights illuminate your windows in a really cool way. More importantly, it's a small but impactful way of showing your support and caring.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, and thank you to all of our law enforcement officers and K9s.
