It’s a hectic time we live in. We try to be everywhere and succeed in everything which often leads to stress and health problems. But it’s still better thanwasting your days.
In the 17th century, good honest people used to say that such jokers and bon vivants were burning the candle at both ends. At that time, wax candles were a privilege of rich people, so poor families usedrushesto make candles. They took a stalk, soaked it in hot fat and as a result got a thin slightly crooked candle that was fixed in a special holder. This homemade candle was burnt at both ends to produce more light. It took 20 minutes for one candle to burn completely, and soon enough, this span became a time-measuring unit.
Now we tend to turn to candles when we need to create a romantic or relaxing atmosphere. We rarely value candles in terms of a source of light.
