An unlit candle argues that a moth is a myth. A lit candle however bolts through the darkness and offers a little brightness despite knowing it will eventually melt away. With Christmas approaching, the significance of these candles increases in our lives more than ever. However, a candle without a candle holder is like Christmas without a Christmas tree.
