Homes across America light 26 candles for Newtown, Conn., victims!/kristinthompson/status/283381044282019840

Many people tonight are lighting 26 candles for the victims of the Newtown shooting, and pictures are pouring in on Twitter. The most prominent vigils are in Connecticut, where the shooting took place, but we found plenty of pictures from all across America. This is one of the most touching things we’ve seen in a while, and seeing as we normally cover the murky backwaters of the Twitterverse, it’s nice to see a wholesome meme for once. Thanks so much to everyone who did this, and Merry Christmas.

Saw this all over Connecticut tonight “@smoke_wizard: My mom put candles for the each person who died in newtown 😔…
