Courting Candle

We went to Fort Union this weekend and I found this beautiful, unique candle holder. There is a delightful history to this candle. A father would set the candle on the porch and tell the couple that when the candle burned down to the top of its holder, the young man must go home. If a father (or the girl) did not care for the suitor, the candle would be lowered. On the other hand a favored suitor would have the candle raised to its highest level. We were teasing Josh and we told him we would light if for him if he found a girl.
