One of the things that I do not love about autumn? The shorter days. I am a person who needs light! So when the days get shorter and colder, out come the candles! My favorite tea light holders are these glass block star shaped ones. Earl got them for me years ago and I have been on the lookout for more ever since with no luck. I love the star shape with the glow of candles for the holidays. It is a symbol of the star that guided the wise men to Jesus. I also have these hanging star tea light holders that I use in the dining room. It is often dark when Earl gets home from work and I like the warmth of the candles in the windows welcoming him home to a warm dinner and the love of his family. I light these almost every night in the winter, and whoever is out at night enjoys coming home to a cozy looking house. I use candles all through the house and buy the tea lights in bulk. We don't have a fireplace so the warmth and glow of candles fills that need nicely. What are some of your ideas for using candles during the holidays?
