Candles on a Christmas tree are a part of the holiday, COURTESY ULRIKE LECHERT-LOMBARDIS

“We put real candles on the tree. The holders are the ones we used when I was a child in Germany. My mother has to ship the candles to the US because we cannot find the right size here. Ideally we find a tree that is not pruned into the typical cone shape. Branches that are sticking out are safer for the candles. Normally we buy from Fred’s but this year we went to the Cub Scouts on Church Street.” — Ulrike Lechert-Lombardis
