What is a Christmas candle? It is a cylinder, or sometimes a jar, that is decorated with candles of various types and shapes. In most cases it is plain glass with a top filled with glass balls or small candles. Christmas candle can refer to any type of candle you like: Advent candle, handmade candles, Christian religious candles, artificial candles, Fourth Day Advent candles, Victorian candles, hurricane candles, scented candles, glass balls or soy candles. The candles are decorated and arranged in the jar in many different ways. Some of the popular ways are described below.
One of the most popular ways of decorating Christmas candle is to put it in front of a window and have the window light up so that the candle is glowing. A glass ball made of milk, vanilla or almond is placed inside the glass jar and covered with a Christmas candle. Once the glass is covered the candle is lit on Christmas eve. The shining of the candle causes a white fog to form in front of the glass ball. Many Christians believe that this fog is proof of the fact that Jesus Christ performed several miracles after his birth.
Another way is to place a small candle inside a Christmas stocking filled with hay and berries. Once the candle is lit, the fragrance of the candle travels through the air until it reaches the hay and the berries. This fragrance travels along with the fragrance of the Christmas tree. Many Christians claim that this miracle is proof that Jesus Christ performed the first miracle of the year when he came down from the tree. The miracle of lighting up a Christmas candle and then watching it disappear into the darkness of the night is often referred to as the "Great Fire" of Christmas.
A third way of using a christmas candle is to put it on the Christmas tree. You can find special glass jars with a hole in the top for placing a candle on. Many people place special colored candles on top of their Christmas trees hoping that their neighbors will burn one when they burn theirs in the future. If you follow this method, be sure to place your glass jar on the Christmas tree ahead of time so that it can be lit with the aroma of your own Christmas candle.
The fourth way to use a Christmas candle is at the celebration itself. During the opening of Christmas, many houses are decorated with beautiful ornaments. At the time of this celebration, people like to use their Christmas candles to add a sense of atmosphere to the decorations. You can find different colored candles available that have evergreen Christmas wishes written on them. Many people have tried lighting these candles and have reported that they have had a very positive experience.
