You can be romantic at the same time as saving some energy (and money) by eating by candlelight.
We occasionally will have a candle-lit meal because it is just fun to make a meal special once in a while. We don't do it very often, but maybe we should. The kids also love the opportunity to get to blow out the candles. We always have a candle-lit meal on the winter solstice and take that opportunity to teach our kids a little bit about it.
Think about having a candle-lit meal this coming Valentine's Day.
