A day before yesterday, there was a wooden box at the entrance of my house.

Can you guess for what?

We use these candles for lighting up stone lantern at our local shrine.

I went to there and lit the candles.

Then I prayed peace and safe for my neighbors and for my family.

This traditional custom has being kept for over a few hundreds years untill today.
