Love the scent of Christmas? I know I do. It’s not always convenient for us to have a real Christmas tree but by using Christmas scented candles we can still have the aroma of it. Perhaps you prefer cinnamon stick? What about peppermint and vanilla as your scent? These candles make you home smell divine at Christmas time.
How frustrating is it to plan the perfect holiday and get ready to purchase a sought after item like Christmas candles and you can’t find the scent you want because all of the good ones are gone?
If you wait, you’ll get stuck with the leftovers – the ones that have been picked over and no one else wanted.
Tradition has it that the biggest shopping day of the year is the day after Thanksgiving.
On that day, consumers all across America crowd into stores determined to bring home what they need at a bargain price. Or they jam Internet websites ordering items left and right and some sites have even crashed due to the enormous volume of visitors.
Why do people put off buying what they need until the last minute? Until they have joined the herd of people trying to shop? It’s certainly not fun. Part of the reason why we put off shopping (besides those of us who are procrastinators at heart) is because we fall into line and we follow tradition. What’s so great about a tradition that raises your blood pressure and creates mass crowds of rudeness? Nothing.
Don’t wait until the holidays are right in front of you to stock up on your Christmas candles. Don’t put yourself in the stressful position where you must get the candles. Get them early so you can relax.
What do Candles Symbolize?
Do you know the symbolism behind having candles at Christmas time? Years ago, candles were said to give light in order to keep bad things at bay. They were given as gifts to symbolize new beginnings and they were used as a symbol of bringing families together – hence the marriage unity candle you see in some wedding ceremonies.
You can see candles glowing in windows in some of the beautiful Christmas paintings we have today. The candles in the window symbolize welcoming loved ones home and giving light to help the lost on their way.
Modern Christmas Scented Candles
Today we go beyond the concept of just using candles for light. We use them to provide a wonderful aroma in our homes. At Christmas time especially, when you’ve got your Christmas decor in place, it’s time to focus on what scent you want to bring into your home through candles.
Christmas scented candles come in all shapes and sizes and there’s a favorite scent for everyone. I love the fresh Christmas tree scent even when we don’t have a real tree.
You can also choose…
- apple cinnamon,
- cinnamon spice,
- peppermint and vanilla (another of my favorites),
- pear and freesia,
- lavender and jasmine,
- French vanilla,
- cedar and eucalyptus,
- whiskey and oak, or
- the scent of a fresh Christmas tree.
The list just goes on and on. You really can create any atmosphere you want with a Christmas scented candle.

Christmas Victorian Themed Decorations
For those who chose to go with a Victorian theme to decorate their homes, miniature candles are often placed on the tree. But keep in mind those must be carefully watched and if you have small children or know that small children are going to be in attendance, save the lighting of the candles until they’re not around.
