The History of Christmas Lights and Candles

In days gone by, candles were always been a traditional part of Christmas and still are today. Upon research, their use seems to be related to Hanukkah, the Jewish "Annual Festival of Lights".

Christmas candles are meant to be symbolic of Christ, "The Light of the World". On Christmas Eve around the world, Churches hold candlelight services in honor of the coming of Jesus' birthday. Christmas lights are meant as a symbol of the candles that burn signifying that Christ is the Light of the World.

The placing of on windowsills at Christmas time originated in the Middle Ages. This tradition was intended to guide the Christ Child to Christian homes, and also served as a sign to travelers or pilgrims that they would be welcome in the house that displayed candles
