  At the birth, a flame placed over the candle wick, as a soothing light grew to be a glowing one. Some candles were made taller than others, and some with thicker layers of wax. From time to time, candles were blown off the table to fall to their bits, while the flames of some diminished by the wind, and relighted only through the fire of others. Either the wax would melt after providing much light and heat, or the candle wick would wither away in the cold of night.
