But why do we associate candles with Christmas?

The tradition of candles at Christmas reaches back through the centuries. The advent wreath is thought to be adopted from a Pagan tradition or lighting a candle placed in a circle of leaves, which was a symbol of hope that Spring would come once more. In Christianity, the wreath holds four candles, and one is lit each Sunday in advent. The four candles are thought to symbolise hope, faith, joy and peace. Meanwhile, for iconic, early Christmas tree candles UK history places them in the late 19th-century, when they became a key style trend for Victorian England.
