And God said, "Let there be light,"...Genesis 1:3. Lighting two candles separates time periods: from regular days to festival days.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּנוּ לְהַדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל [שַׁבָּת וְשֶׁל] יוֹם טוֹב
Blessed are you, God, ruler of the universe, who makes us holy with your good rules such as lighting the candles of (Shabbat and of) a good day.
