Lighting Candles World Wide
A Project of Three Sides to Every Story, Inc.

Imagine for a moment Lighting Candles World Wide and all at the same time. Imagine your child knowing we are Lighting Candles World Wide just for them.

We have given this a lot of thought and we have come to the conclusion that everyone can light a candle at their home or in their home town at a designated place.

You can be apart of Lighting Candles World Wide to show a united front for the children and their need to have both parents and grandparents in their lives.

We have chosen 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on December 18, which is one week before Christmas (more time zones below) for another annual Lighting Candles World Wide. Christmas is the worst time of year for parents, grandparents, extended family and children who are separated from each other. Being separated at anytime of year is hard, but especially for the children who are not to blame for their situation and in most cases do not understand.


We realize that in far too many cases the children pay a very hard price for the actions of their adult parents. We are asking everyone to come together on this very special day of Lighting Candles World Wide. One candle lit from each and every one of us at the same time will make a vibrant light world wide and make this a very special evening, just one week before Christmas.

We believe if asked, a child would pick both parents instead of just one. We also believe that a child should not be forced or tricked into giving up a parent because the other parent no longer needs or wants that parent.

We are asking for everyone to put the children first and allow our country to heal the family. There is nothing more important then family. There is no greater gift then family.

We want to light candles in every town within every county within every state in the US. We are also getting great response from other countries... India, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Brazil, Russia, Great Britain  and several places in Europe such as Italy and Germany. We look forward to lighting a candle with you.

This is a WORLD WIDE event and we want You to be involved.

The link below will provide you with a guide to look up your own time tone if what we have here is not covering your area.


Our goal is to light all the candles at the same exact same minute all over the world, therefore your time to light candles even though at the exact minute we do, might very well be a different day and/or time then ours.

Our next Lighting Candles World Wide event will be
December 18, 2013

We invite you to join us in this humanitarian effort for all children and their families.
