History and significance of advent calendars

A Time-Honored Tradition: Advent calendars have a rich history, originating in Germany during the 19th century and originally used by Protestant Christians. They were initially designed to mark the days leading up to Christmas and symbolize the anticipation of Christ's birth. These early Advent calendars were simple, often consisting of a series of numbered doors that were opened one by one each day.

In the early 20th century, Advent calendars became more elaborate and began to include a variety of features, such as small toys, chocolates, or religious images. Today, Advent calendars are available in all shapes and sizes, and they can be found in many different countries around the world.

Advent calendars are a popular way to celebrate the Advent season, which is the four-week period leading up to Christmas. They can be used by people of all ages, and they can be a fun and festive way to countdown to the holiday season. If you are looking for a way to add a touch of Christmas magic to your home this year, an Advent calendar is a great option.

Traditional Advent calendars vs. Candle Advent calendars

The Candle Twist: While traditional advent calendars often feature chocolates or small trinkets, Candle Advent Calendars take the experience to a new level. Each day, you'll not only unveil a surprise but also light a beautifully scented candle, filling your home with warmth and holiday spirit. 

So, if you're shopping for an Advent Calendar as a gift for adults or teens, candle Advent Calendars are a unique, fun twist on a traditional Advent Calendar, which may be a great fit for younger kids.

    Benefits of using a candle advent calendar

    • Multi-Sensory Delight: One of the most enchanting aspects of a Candle Advent Calendar is the sensory journey it offers. As you open each door or box, you're greeted with a unique fragrance that embodies the spirit of the season. From soothing lavender to spicy cinnamon, these scents create a cozy atmosphere that can't be replicated by chocolate alone.

    • Anticipation and Relaxation: Lighting a candle each day becomes a calming ritual, a moment of reflection and anticipation during the busy holiday season. It's a chance to slow down, savor the scents, and connect with the spirit of giving.

    Choosing the perfect Candle Advent Calendar

    • Spoiled for Choice: When selecting your Candle Advent Calendar, consider your scent preferences and the style that complements your decor. Some calendars offer a variety of scents, while others may have repeat scents, or just 12 scents instead of 24. Our Candles Advent Calendar features 24 different scented candles with no repeats so that you're surprised every day by a new scent to give a try! Plus, each of the 24 candles is a clean-burning soy candle with plenty of scent for you to enjoy. 

    • Size Matters: Take into account the size of the candles and the calendar itself. Some prefer smaller votive candles, while others opt for larger jars. Ensure it fits well into your designated space. One of the things we love about our Advent Calendar Candles is how versatile the tin candles are, along with how versatile the cute numbered boxes are. Set them up in whatever configuration works for your space, or opt to not get the boxes at all if you have a set-up all ready to go.

    Decorating ideas for your candle advent calendar

    Deck the Halls: Incorporating your Candle Advent Calendar into your holiday decor can be a delightful creative venture. You can place it on your mantelpiece, create a centerpiece with greenery, or put it under your tree before the other Christmas presents are even wrapped. It becomes a focal point that not only marks the days but adds to the festive ambiance.

    Safety tips and precautions when using a candle advent calendar

    Stay Safe and Enjoy: Safety is paramount when using any type of candle. Ensure the candles from your Advent Calendar are placed on a heat-resistant surface, away from flammable objects, and out of the reach of children and pets. The metal tins do have little raised feet on the bottom to help protect the surface they're on, but it's still a good idea to be careful so as not to ruin any table or dresser. Never leave the candle unattended, and be sure to blow it out before you go to sleep.
