Giant candle

Tags: candles via etnea vfeast of saint agatha

This candle is big but not the biggest. Lots of accidents after the feast because wax coats the streets and no one can brake properly. People slip and fall.
Devotees may carry a candle that weighs as much as they do, made to order for each. i have filmed the candlemakers at work for my documentary.
