Well I'll take your word for it - but in my 39 years in the UK, in many locations- I don't know of a single family with real candles on their tree in UK. And all friends, neighbours and colleagues were aghast at the idea... Which is why the girls felt it was so so special.
I’m completely flabbergasted by this. It really wasn’t unusual at all.

I just asked OH and he said they had candles on their tree when ne was young and his grandparents had them right up until they died in the nineteen eighties.
