"Nauvoo Courting Candle" - In old Nauvoo the courting candle represented an important part of the household and family. Courting candles were used by the father of a young girl to set boundaries for her callers. When the daughter's suitor came calling, the father lit the candle in a sitting room where the couple conversed. When the candles burnt to the metal at the top of the candle holder, it was time for the suitor to promptly leave. However, the father could change the height of the candle based on how much he liked the boy. Also, the father could immediately snuff out the candle or add a second candle depending on what he deemed necessary. The courting candle served as a quiet, yet firm reminder to the suitor to end his date.
