People used to put lit candles in the windows to help someone find their way there. That was before electric lights and the world was a pretty dark place. Neighborhoods didn't exist like now. It was easier to find a place in the dark if there was a light to guide you. Then it became somewhat symbolic. For example, if your husband went off to war. It shows that you're waiting for someone to come home.

(Flameless) Electric lights people use now are just good common sense. They're safer then a lit candle.
Do the right thing. It's good to bend, just don't bend over.
