9 muses musing - CANDLE

8th night
8th night by damiec

Candles are are a part of so many holiday traditions at this time of year.  The lighting of the menorah; the Advent wreath; the crown of candles worn by Santa Lucia; the seven candles of Kwanzaa; and  the candles lit to celebrate the winter solstice (which, coincidentally, is traditionally observed today).

Today's prompt is CANDLE.  Share with us how candles fit into your holiday and seasonal celebrations. Please link your blog or flickr url in the link provided below.

Today's giveaway is a bit of holiday sparkle -- a handcrafted silver and ice blue beaded bracelet on memory wire, in its own little zippered bag.  Leave a comment for a chance to win this little bit of bling.

Your creative holiday prompt for tomorrow is: SNOWFLAKE.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I was just introduced to your blog from Kat. What a lovely sight. My favorite memory of candles is in bags and lined up down the driveway on Christmas eve - luminarias. What a lovely way to line the way for the baby Jesus.
