Worldwide Candle Lighting Day is the 2nd Sunday in December
Worldwide Candle Lighting Day is a holiday that takes place on the second Sunday in December. On this day people across the globe light candles for an hour starting at 7PM local time in remembrance of children who have passed away. This is now one of the largest candle lighting events anywhere in the world. The goal is to have candles lit for an hour in every time zone, so there will always be candle light somewhere in the world throughout this day.
