According to Judaism the day starts at nightfall. Shabbat begins as the sun starts to set and ends at night when you can see three stars in the sky. The Havdala ceremony which separates the Sabbath from the rest of the week includes a candle with multiple wicks.
And many people light the Shabbat candles again, after Shabbat as a "Melave Malka" for a good week.
Blessings to all of you.
May there be good news, good health and many joyful events and news...
