"There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle"- Robert Alden
Placing a burning candle in one's window is a common tradition that dates back to colonial times. Candle light often evokes the warmth of home and family. The candle was often placed in the window when a member of the family was away. The lit candle was also placed in the window as a sign of good news or as a beacon to weary travelers. Candles also represented friendship and were seen as a sign of welcome to others. In early America, homes were often miles apart. The sight of a candle in a window from a distance was a sign of "welcome" to those wishing to visit.
At Wishful Living we have "timer" Tapers and Pillars, a battery operated candle that turns itself on for 6 hours, off for 18 hours, and turns itself on again for 6 hours and so on. They are a great addition to any holiday decor, or any time of year.
