The goal is, as candles burn down in one time zone, they are lighted in the next to create a continuous wave of light around the world.
Here in San Diego, you can join others at the San Diego Hospice and Palliative Care for a local candle lighting ceremony to remember. Warm clothes are suggested. The event will be held outdoors in the Tribute Garden at the hospice, 4311 Third Ave, Hillcrest, 6:30pm to 8pm. Open to the community, free of charge.
