The irony is that the WORST place to put candles is in a shaft that conducts an air current. If you put a candle in such a shaft, the flame would tend to favor one side of the candle, the wax on that sidewould melt faster than the other side leaving a trough down that side, and the candle would burn down very quickly. Far better to place a candle where there is ZERO air current so that the wick enjoys a surrounding pool of wax that burns more efficiently thereby allowing the candle to live a long, illuminating life. Those who subscribe to the candle hypothesis don't seem to realize that the report of an air current in the shaft is evidence of why candles were likely NOT placed in the shafts for any length of time!

Besides, putting a candle in the shaft severaly constrains the angle of illumination, thereby leaving the majority of the room dark with only the opposite wall being illuminated from across the room.
