More homes heat and cook with electric, and fewer people smoke cigarettes, so homes often keep a low supply of matches. But when birthdays, quiet dinners or other events need candles lit, light a few candles with one match. But after that match burns out, light or re-light the remaining candles with twist-ties (the kind that come with plastic bags but are rarely used) ignited by candles already lit. The twist-ties last about as long as a short match.
