A CANDLE IN THE WINDOW

The candle in the window signals warmth and safety. It is an invitation, a welcome and conveys care and concern to family and friends.






"The tradition of placing a candle in the window goes back to Colonial times in the United States and back much further in time for other cultures. It is a tradition practiced throughout the year. It symbolizes the warmth and security of the family hearth and signals loyalty to family members and loved ones who are not present in the home. At Christmas time it follows the tradition of the Colonial Williamsburg Christmas."
