Extinguishing Candles

Probably the first deliberate act of magic anyone ever performs is blowing out the candles on a birthday cake: make a wish and if you blow them all out together the wish will come true.

Those wanting to foster a belief in magic in their young are advised not to play tricks with non-extinguishable candles!

This practice would seem to originate from the ancient Greeks who believed that the candles symbolized the years of your life and by blowing them out you indicated that you have completed the time passed and were ready for time to come.

But there are other beliefs associated with the putting out of candles....

  • * Should a candle be accidentally extinguished, or go out on its own accord, the household will be either one fewer, or one greater, by the morning.
  • *If a candle burns down one side, but not the other, someone will betray you.

In the Craft, it is said that a candle may be pinched out with moistened fingers, or snuffed with a candle snuffer., but should never be blown out. Some people believe (and I am one of those that do...) to blow out the candle, it is disrespectful to the Fire Element and even to the Salamanders which are creatures of Fire.

Most candle spells require that the candle should burn all the way down.


"Plan for success, failure doesn't need the help."
Have you ever met a Witch/Pagan/Wiccan who doesn't like candles? 
At that matter, have you ever been in a home that doesn't have candles??
