In Colombia, Candles Day is a frequently honored traditional event. On December 7, the night before the Immaculate Conception, a national holiday in Colombia, it is observed. The country’s Christmas season officially begins on First Advent Sunday, although this day marks the unofficial beginning of the holiday season.
In honor of the Virgin Mary & her Immaculate Conception, people arrange candles as well as paper lanterns around windowsills, balconies, porches, sidewalks, streets, parks, and squares on this night. It is usual for homes to fly a white flag with a picture of the Virgin Mary throughout the day on December 8. They also host a lot of events, such as tournaments and fireworks displays.

People burned candles & paper lanterns in anticipation of this choice to demonstrate their belief in and support for it.
This announcement was celebrated by burning candles throughout, including in Colombia. Catholic Church of Colombia preserved the holiday and established a custom of burning candles on December 7 night every year. The Paisa area, in particular, observes the night of the small candles many nights before December 8. This is thought to be a Hanukkah ritual since a significant.
