Macedonian Christening Candles

Macedonian Christening Candles

After the christening the candles are taken home and brought back to the church three times and lit. The third time they are left at the church. The lit candles signify everlasting life and as the flame rises so do the congregation's prayers. Parents can also choose to become closer to their friends by having their sons 'christened in the same water', like brothers - called pobratim.
