#6 Christmas Candles

Origin of the Christmas Candle

The first Christmas candle use can be traced to Germany. Along with originating the tradition of the Christmas tree, Germany is believed to have been the first country to place Christmas candles on the boughs of the tree.

From a Christian perspective, a Christmas candle signifies Jesus as being the light of the world. 

The Christmas candle is also said to represent victory of good over evil or light over darkness in many cultures.
