On a dark, snowy Christmas Eve, a young man hurrying home for a family celebration enters a chandler's shop to buy a candle for his lantern. He scoffs at the beautifully sculpted creations of the old chandler and instead purchases a simple, inexpensive Christmas candle that the chandler warns him he may find costly.

The young man soon realizes that the old man meant, as the poor and ill he encounters on his journey, illuminated by his Christmas candle, become the faces of his relatives, so he feels compelled to help them. he arrives home cold and penniless, but richer for his newfound realization that we are all part of one family.

This beautifully illustrated original fable by the acclaimed author of The Christmas Box will become a treasured part of many families' Christmases for years to come.

  • Perfect Message for The Holidays
    Verified Purchase

    What a short, beautiful and poignant little story! Bought 2 copies, one for my kids and one to give to their Sunday School class. The message of loving our neighbor and treating them the way we ourselves would want to be treated is significant and movingly portrayed in this story. Wonderful to read with children on your lap or at your feet, cuddled under a warm blanket by a cozy fire to remind ourselves just how lucky and truly blessed we really are. A story that can really help plant the seed in children to practice random acts of kindness on their fellow man. A classic, and a family tradition-to-become in our home.
