lighting candles

Some magical candles can be lit by walking past them "or by waving a hand in front of them".

Are we sure that this is a feature of magical candles? I think that, in film 3, Dumbledore merely performed a wandless, nonverbal Incendio spell on muggle candles.--Rodolphus 14:06, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

I agree the hand-waving bit was probably Dumbledore's doing. What's the source on the "walking past", one of the video games?- Nick O'Demus 14:17, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

I think I´ve seen it several times in a walkthrough of the PS2 version of PS. It´s also one time in the film version when they enter the forbidden corridor for the first time.--Rodolphus 14:22, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
