Might Alan Shepard's Prayer still be popular?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepard%27s_Prayer

could the first startup of a new fusion reactor be called 'lighting the candle'?

A series of checks must be done every time a ship makes a double jump with a deep space stop over.
Things that must be done would be;
Transfer fuel from temporary tanks to the regular fuel tanks.
Check the jump drive.
Do a vacuum suited spacewalk to check the external components.
An armed guard is needed to accompany the person doing the outside checks against void monsters.
The navigator must do a position check, then calculates the second jump.
All crew members that have never done a deep space stopover must do a space walk circling around the hull followed by the Kraken ceremony. Where the new void jumpers swear in that they “Saw the Deep Space Kraken.”
All passengers gather in the passenger lounge with an external view for the second jump where they toast to the success of the trip.
Lights throughout the ship are dimmed, lights in the lounge are completely turned off for the second jump.
All crew members report to the pilot they are dark, ready to jump.
Pilot engages the jump drive to the final destination.
