Tending the candles, feast of the Dormition, Rubjel’ 2012.  Сьвяток Усьпеньня, Рубель 2012 год.

Families will often let their children help tend the candle holders to light candles, remove the stubs of wax, or straighten candles which have wilted in the heat.  Participating in this way gives the children a sense of responsibility and a sense of respect for church traditions.
