Window Candles Stand For Safe Haven And Standing

UnCategorized Obviously, we all know that window candles are very decorative and can cast a touch of class to just about any setting but how many of you know the real tradition behind our favored candles; probably not too many mainly due to the fact that we take them for granted. We may know that they do date back to the Colonial days of the Americas which makes for a long history that is pretty much forgotten but there is more to it than that. The candle is a symbol to a great deal of people and it also provides a sense of tranquility, warmth and the security of a safe home. Also it is used as a gentle reminder and also a guide to the family members who are not at home with us. Where Was The Start of the Candle The most symbolized facet of the window candle is by far the existence of fire during earlier times. Due to this symbolization the candle is very much a tradition. As mentioned earlier the window candle provides a safe haven for us even though it is only through symbolism but it does help in these some times dangerous era we are living in. Another facet associated with candles through fire is is the central hearth or as we cal it today the kitchen. The hearth is where the fire was stoked and the meals were cooked. This provided a mainstay for the traditional family just like the window candle. In many cultures and not just in the Americas a candle has been a reminder of the loved ones that are away travelling. Many of the cultures share the same tradition of the window candle as we do. Not only was the candle a symbolic reminder about our family members being away from home buy it was also meant as a way to guide that person back to their home where they knew there would be a warm welcome with a healthy meal and a warm bed. In Ireland during the war there was another tradition that placed a candle in a building where a religious sermon would be spoken. Even in early America during the colonial times a window candle in a home meant some special occasion was happening or about to such as a birthday. Still today local businesses will have some sort of candle in their windows, particularly at Christmas time. The Window Candles of Today Just like the traditional window candles that we like to display around Christmas we now have and extensively use electric candles. They still have the same meaning of being safe and secure in our home along with the warmth we feel even if there is no real flame. Certainly the lit Christmas candles we put out are much more decorated and exaggerated than the usual window candles of everyday use. The usual tradition candles are the tapered type which are still common when it comes to door or window decorations. They can really make you feel invited but they also add a classical look along with tranquility. These and all candles can be found not only in your stores but of course on the internet where you may find even more styles to choose from. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
