Candle Ceremony

A Look at Candle Ceremonies

Candle ceremonies are intended to portray a symbol of unity, and are a great inclusion at any naming day.

Three candles (or sometimes more) are required for this ceremony, with the candles being displayed in line at the head of the ceremony. In the centre of the line of candles is a single large candle, which represents the child at the centre of the naming day.

Traditionally, the parents of the child having the naming day would take the outer lit candles (sometimes referred to as tapers), and use them to light the centre candle. Another variation, (and depending on the number of candles being used) is to ask family members, guests and close friends to take the outer candles (tapers) and also light the centre candle.

During the candle lighting ceremony, it is common to play music in the background, or to have someone perform a reading.

The lighting of the centre candle symbolises the parents (and any other incumbents) support, acceptance, and unification to the child having the naming day.
