Candles and Holly

A warm and intimate touch to your holiday decorations is this stunning sea glass arrangement with lit candles, green holly and berries. There are many different reasons why candles are associated with Christmas, although no one know when they first became connected.  They were used during ancient winter solstice celebrations as a way of remembering that spring would soon come.

 One of the earliest records of candles being used at Christmas-time is from the middle ages, where a large candle was used to represent the star of Bethlehem. Jesus is sometimes called ‘the Light of the World’ by Christians.
