October 15th specifically is World Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. People around the world participate in the International Wave of Light by lighting a candle at 7PM [local time] to honor all babies who have died too soon. Keep your candle lit for at least one hour to create a continuous "wave of light" across all time zones and the entire world.
