Candles in a Window

Around Christmastide, it is a common custom to place candles in the windows of houses at nighttime. For many people, this may just be decoration, but it is an meaningful and noble tradition. A house with candles is a beacon in the darkness; a shelter for travelers and the homeless.

This Christmas, if a pregnant teenager and her 35 year old husband came to your door and asked to stay the night and give birth in your house, would you welcome them in?
