Candle Light Dinner

An Amazing Tradition and It's Ancient Journey.


Dining around candle light have been a tradition with ancient roots and relavence across cultures.
The western tradition of adding lit candles to the top of a birthday cake originates in 18 th century Germany, though the amalgamation of Cakes and Birthday celebrations stretch back to the Ancient Romans and Candels are ascribed as a third century BC invention from China.
Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights, also has significance of celebrating, singing and dining with family and friends around candle light.
In Indian culture, since ancient times, a lamp is lit daily before the altar of the Lord.
It is said in the Vedas that, light symbolises knowledge and knowledge removes ignorance as light removes darkness
Why not light a bulb or tube light? That too would remove darkness but the traditional oil lamp or Candel light has a further spiritual significance.
The wax/oil/ghee symbolises negative tendencies, ego, prejudice and hard feelings. When lit together with Family, Friends or that special someone, it melts all these negative feelings and increases the bonding between them.
This bond is further strengthened and celebrated over sharing great food with each other.
