In Ireland it was a custom, at Christmas to keep a lit candle in the window to signal to Mary & Joseph that they were welcome at this home and also that any stranger in need of warmth and sustenance would not be turned away .In the Penal days it was illegal and dangerous to practice the Catholic faith in Ireland but candles seen in the windows of Irish homes at Christmas they signalled to travelling priests that this was a home where they would be welcome and where they could safely conduct the traditional Irish Christmas Mass. The words from the “Kerry Christmas Carol” give a senses of the roots of this old Irish tradition”:

Don’t blow the tall white candle out
But leave it burning bright, 
So that they’ll know they’re welcome here
This holy Christmas night!

 
A candle was lit in Aras an Uachtarain when President Mary Robinson re-adopted this custom during her term of office, to remember all of the emigrants that had left Ireland and let them know the candle in the window would always be lit up to remember them and guide their way back to Ireland and to a welcoming home.imagesCAXYTMW2
