Date of Joke: Thursday, 7th June, 2007
Prior to our wedding, David and I met with the minister to discuss our marriage ceremony
and various traditions, such as lighting the unity candle from two individual candles. Couples
usually blow out the two candles as a sign of becoming one. Our minister said that many people
were now leaving their individual candles lit to signify independence and personal freedom.
He asked if we wanted to extinguish our candles or leave them burning.
