It’s December and the seasonal activity is in full swing.  Making a home ready for the holidays involves lots of tidying and organising. But aside from the practical essentials of getting prepared for visits from family and friends, the holidays are a great time for relaxation and contemplation.

Lighting, and, specifically candle lights, play a big part in the whole Christmas atmosphere. Closely linked to the advent leading up to the celebration, bringing candles into the home provides a soothing and restful offering of tranquil luminescence. Here are a selection of candles and candle holders that will be able to bring a special atmosphere around your home this month.
