The whole month of December, our family eats by candlelight. We take turns lighting and (carefully) blowing out the candles. I grew up with that tradition, back in the old days when we used matches to light candles.
My kids love this tradition. We used to use tapers, but it became to tricky for lighting purposes, then we went the votive route - too messy, now we just use tea lights. Ahhh perfect.
Luckily, we have a dimmer on our dining room light so we can still see what we're eating, but the kids get the feel of eating by candlelight. As soon as Thanksgiving is over, they are begging us to bring out the candle tree.
