A makeshift multi-wicked flame


We have said that one should use a multi-wicked candle for Havdalah. What do you do if there is no multi-wicked candle available?

One solution is to use two normal candles, holding them side-by-side. The basic requirement is just that there be fuel (such as a candle's wax) surrounding each wick, so holding two individual candles together, such that their flames merge, does the job.

(Mishneh Berurah 298:8)

Have a great day,
