The peace and serenity of Shabbos is ushered in by lighting the candles. They cast a sweet glow over the home and expand the soul as the spiritual light enters all corners. The standard ones come in various sizes to fit different candlesticks. Safed handmade candles made in that holy city are available in pure white, or royal blue and white shades and are dripless. Small tea lights are convenient for travelling and are also used in some of the designer candlesticks. A practical and beautiful accessory is the matchbox holder of metal, sometimes with an addition of decorative wood, which can house matches for lighting and can be left on the table subsequently as it only adds to the ambiance and unique charm of the Shabbat table.
