As the story was told to me, during the Advent season, the Christ Child wandered along the streets, in hope of finding homes where He would be given warmth and shelter. Candles placed in the windows of homes and churches indicated that there was a place where there was always room for the Christ child both in the building and in their hearts.
You may already know that the Christmas tree originated in Germany but did you know the first Christmas candle did too. Germany is the first country to place Christmas candles on the boughs of tree. Do you burn candles during the holidays?
