II-095b A01 candles Introduction: Customs of Lent and Carnival.They would buy large candles and they would be blessed in the church and they would sprinkle a little of it on the backs of all those in the house in the Name of the Father. They would go to church with the candle and you blessed yourself with some drops from it. The same was done to the chicken house, the rabbit warren and the rest.

It was kept lit during the whole mass.
