On 31 October, 1997, Remus and Tonks light candles.Characters:
In my long, still-being-written Remus-and-Tonks story, I'd already written a while ago about Remus on Halloween during Order of the Phoenix, and now I've reached the point in that story of writing about Remus on Halloween during Half-Blood Prince. Which of course made me wonder, what about Remus and Tonks on Halloween during Deathly Hallows? Thus, this.
I'd just like to note that yes, yahrzeit candles are a Jewish tradition, and no, so far as we know neither Remus nor Tonks is Jewish (though they could be, I suppose!) But I'm Jewish myself, and I have no problem with these characters adopting this tradition in the respectful way they do here.
