Shabbos candles means to me that it glows when I light it. That it is a mitzvah because I light saying the bracha and give everyone a kiss and say Good Shabbos. When I light the candles, it spreads the light all over the world and people come and they light Shabbos candles with us. And I love putting a lot of money in the pushka more than once, because I just love looking at the poor people because I like to give them money and food.
