From the end of November to mid-January, bright holiday decorations bring color and magic to people's homes and lives. During this time of the year when people are more inclined to share good thoughts and love, Christmas candles add sparkle and warmth to our homes burning either in the fir trees, on the chimneys or the tables. For every Christian, Christmas candles announce the great news of the coming of Jesus into this world and the beginning of the kingdom of love. Both decorations and symbolic representations, Christmas candles are items that should never be absent from one's home during the winter holidays.
The favorite colors for Christmas candles are gold, silver and red, since they perfectly match the holiday atmosphere; yet, all sorts of interesting combinations are possible, one more appealing than the other. If you plan to use the Christmas candles to decorate the branches of the fir tree, they need to be as shiny as possible, and preferably star-shaped. The color choice is up to you, since most people go for matching tree decorations: silver, blue and gold, red and gold or any other stylish variations. Electric lights are considered the greatest competition for Christmas candles; nevertheless, each has it particular charm and special effect in the coziness of your home.
Scented Christmas candles are also highly appreciated during this time of the year, and the most required scents include cinnamon, pine and fir tree, that add up to the holiday atmosphere. The best scented Christmas candles are those that include aromatic oils and not chemical fragrances; when the wax melts away, the volatile essential oils in the composition create a persistent aroma that remains in the room long after the candles has burned down. The spiritual tradition has it that for each candle that you light in the house, a little angel comes as a guardian and protector of the person who lit it.
When the holiday season is over, you'd be surprised to see the extent of the sales for Christmas candles. Don't feel sorry for the money you paid a month ago, since December is not exactly the cheapest month of the year. If you want to make a bargain, this is the time to take advantage of; you can actually buy Christmas candles at half their initial price or even less, and save them for the next holiday season. Each of the trifles that we use for decorations on Christmas, has a unique value during that time of the year, and we find it unspoilt and forever attractive over and over again.
