Candles & Christmas...What they mean to me!
This year as we began to work on the ideas for our Deck the Halls line of candles, I pondered what is it about a Christmas candle that makes it so special. The smells are all about bringing us into the season of giving and the reminder of why we continue to have Christmas wishes and search for the reminders of Christmas past.
We are introducing a new candle to the line of Christmas candles this year. Our Grandma's Christmas Bag candle is a celebration of my grandmother. Every year when we were kids we would get a brown paper bag with our name on it. It seemed like Christmas did not even begin for us kids until we open the bags. There wasn't anything really special about the contents an apple, orange, hard candy, candy canes and nuts. I remember the smell like it was yesterday, upon opening the bag we were swepted away with the smell of peppermint and fruit. It's one of my fondest memories of my grandmother and the Christmases we had as kid.
This year is going to be very different for most of us! The gatherings are going to be much smaller and there will be empty seats at many American tables. Our hearts go out to the families that have lost so much this year!
Our hope and prayer is that this year although different, smaller gatherings and family members missing that you get to hold on to the cherish memories of the past and look forward to creating new memories when we can all be with our loved one again! Our goal is to create uniquely fragranced candles that not only enhances your environment but smells that inspire memories for years to come! Merry Christmas to each of you, and thank you for your support of our business this year!
