    Re: use of snuff

    I never use snuff.

    Blow out the candles.

    In church, they do come along with a cap on a stick and place that over the candle until is it snuffed out. I have never heard the word "snuff" used at home, however.

    (You make a wish before you blow out your birthday candles.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
