Flame Friendship candle

No, I have absolutely no idea why the date is supposed to give me goosebumps, and even so, for some reason, the date is in smaller letters and different color than the rest of the words. But since we're keeping inanimate objects alive, why bring up sense? (I have edited out the obnoxious candle gifs.)

Quote:
The Friendship Candle
Please don't break this even if you only send it to one person. Thanks

(Candle gif)

NOTICE AT THE END, THE DATE
THE CANDLE WAS STARTED.
GONNA GIVE YOU GOOSE BUMPS.

I am not going to be the one who
lets it die. I found it believable ---
angels have walked beside me
all my life--and they still do.

*********************

This is to all of you who mean something to me,
I pray for your happiness.
The Candle Of Love, Hope & Friendship

(Yet another, different candle gif)

This candle was lit on the
15th of September, 1998.


Someone who loves you has helped
keep it alive by sending it to you.

Don't let The Candle of Love, Hope
and Friendship die! Pass It On To All
Of Your Friends and Everyone You Love!
May God richly bless you as you keep this candle burning.

Please keep this candle alive .


Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

GOD BLESS YOU .........

I suspect this was written by someone for whom 1998 was an inconceivably long time ago.

I'd be thrilled to find out for sure if that's what it is, Penny. It's going to drive me bats wondering what the hell the significance of the date is otherwise.

Oh boy, that story. Funny how it wasn't enough that she was NOT raped, someone actually had to BE raped to make the story of her protection valid. See? Could have been you, but God loves you and hates that other girl.

Stupid stupid stupid story.

The other girl had electric light in her apartment. Some say it is the work of the Devil.

Must have been a bloody big candle if it's been burning for nearly nine years - the most I've ever gotten out of a candle is about eight hours.

I reckon they've been had, and it's not the same candle.
