Worldwide Candle Lighting Day will be held Sunday, Dec. 10, at 6:45 p.m. at Pacheco Park in Los Banos.

The annual candle lighting, founded in 1997, is a day where friends and family come together to remember children who have left this world too soon. It is always held the second Sunday in December.

The candles are lit at the same time, in every time zone which means the glow of candles will be consistent around the world for a full 24-hour day.

Candles will be provided. A table will be set up to display pictures for this who would like to bring a framed picture of their loved one. For more information call Stacy at (209) 826-2828.
