Question about candle remnants...
« on: November 06, 2011, 05:37:28 pm »
On Halloween/Samhain (or whatever you want to call it) I set up a shrine to my dead family members. I got a white candle and carved their names into it and burned it all the way down. What sould I do with the left over? I've read some people bury things. I'm just unsure.

Thanks

Burying it should be fine.

I've heard burying is a good idea. I have nowhere to bury things, so I tend to go with the whole "in the trash" thing. :D:
