For nearly 2000 years, people all over the world have come together on October 31st each year to celebrate Halloween. There are many cultures with different traditions and ways of celebrating Halloween; and yet there are some aspects that remain universal throughout the years, with candles being one of them. Today, we love candles for their scent and the atmosphere that they bring to our homes; especially during special festivities such as Halloween; but there is a lot of history and sentiment behind candles that has remained a constant throughout the years.
The origins of Halloween date back to the 19th century in Ireland; back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Candles were lit in every room of the house to guide spirits home. This is a tradition that has continued to this day; and who could imagine celebrating Halloween without candles? Candles can signify warmth, guidance, communication, and light. And now you can make your own beautiful soy candles at home with The Candle Maker.
