Legend of The Bayberry Candle 2013

The Legend of The Bayberry Candle is one that came to America with Irish and Italian immigrants.  The Legend holds that a bayberry candle must be burned all the way down without being blown out on Christmas even to bring good luck to the household in the coming year.

Hallmark sells sets of two Bayberry Candles with the legend printed inside the box for about $5.  If you add in a couple of dollar store glass candlesticks, you have a cute little gift for less than $10.  Great for a neighbor, coworker, you name it.  People really love this one!  Here is this year's version that I am giving to my family:

"A Bayberry Candle burnt to the socket brings food to the larder and gold to the pocket!"
