Candles …They’re everywhere in the colder months. They’re on every Instagram story at your holiday party, they’re burning in every bathtub you see on Pinterest, and they’re right there on your coworker’s desk.
Is there truly a Candle Season?
Imagine a time without candles. Try to remember, if you can, a world without the warm glow of flames in the evening. There was no Candle Season or Holiday Candle Season or Evening Candle Season. There were no special occasions for lighting candles either; there were just days, and nights with light and dark like any other day or night.
Candles are not seasonal; they are timeless. They can be lit on any day of the year, at any time of day or night, by anyone who wishes to have their company for some fleeting moments in time (and hopefully longer than that). Candles are wonderful gifts for any occasion; birthdays, anniversaries and holidays are all great times to give someone a gift that warms both heart and house alike!
Where does Candle Season come from?
Candles are a symbol of light in the dark times. They are a symbol of hope, love, remembrance and peace—but most importantly they symbolize unity.
What about candles as gifts?
Candles make great gifts, especially for birthdays, weddings, housewarming parties and anniversaries. They’re also easy to give away because they don’t need any wrapping paper—just a ribbon or bow.
Candle season may not officially exist (yet) but when it does? It will be here in no time at all! There are plenty of reasons why candles are the perfect gift for every occasion:
Candles should be lit all year round
There’s a reason why candles are so frequently used for creating ambiance in romantic settings. They have the ability to create a cozy, warm atmosphere that can be used year round and in any room of your house. Whether it is a candlelit dinner or evening spent relaxing on the couch, there’s something about candlelight that helps people relax and unwind from their everyday stresses. When you light your own candle at home, you’re setting up the perfect environment for unwinding without having to leave your home or go out with friends!
Candlelight has also been shown to improve moods by increasing serotonin levels which makes us feel more positive about ourselves as well as our environment around us.”
Where do we go from here?
