Add a Festive Feel with Christmas Candles
There are plenty of styles to choose from including real candles, battery or electric operated candles and flameless candles. With so much on offer, you are sure to find the right collection to suit your needs.
The History of Christmas Candles
They were given as gifts to symbolize new beginnings and they were used as a symbol of bringing families together – hence the marriage unity candle you see in some wedding ceremonies.
You can see candles glowing in windows in some of the beautiful Christmas paintings we have today. The candles in the window symbolize welcoming loved ones home and giving light to help the lost on their way.
A very popular Christmas candle is from the Yankee Candle Range. This is called Christmas Eve and it is scented. This aromatic candle would make a wonderful Christmas gift too.
Christmas Candle Holders
When you are making the decision on the type of candles to buy, you might like the big sturdy church style candles. These do not need any additional support. The smaller, thinner candles will need some type of candle holder to keep them safe and secure.
There are some great Christmas Candle Holders to choose from. You can buy them individually or as a complete set. Find a colourful set of glasses for the mantelpiece or a highly decorative set that would look beautiful as a table centrepiece.
