Give a gift this season with some New England folklore.

Each candle set includes a Christmas bag, tissue paper, candle, glass candle holder and scroll for easy gift giving.

This 2.8 oz. candle is a blend of 70% bayberry wax and 30% beeswax and will burn for approximately 6 hours.  It is unscented and will burn clean in your home.

For yourself or someone else this candle comes with a parchment scroll covering the legend of burning a bayberry candle  or either Christmas Eve or New Year Eve.  These gift ready candles are a popular item for co-workers, neighbors or family members during the holiday season.

The parchment scroll reads as follows:

Pure bayberry wax tends to be brittle, so the bayberry wax is blended with beeswax to help your candle hold its shape and not fracture. A genuine bayberry candle won't give off a powerful perfume but will emit its fragrance most noticeably when it goes out or is snuffed out.

This bayberry pinecone is a unique and creative holiday gift. Sharing the bayberry holiday tradition is a very thoughtful gift that expresses your wish for them an abundance of joy, happiness, good luck and prosperity in the coming year.

On the night before Christmas or on New Year's Eve, a bayberry candle was burned - it had to be timed to stay alight until after midnight - to bring a year of prosperity and good fortune to the household. You could not extinguish the candle it had to be allowed to burnout on its own.

Lighting a symbolic bayberry candle calls for a recitation of the legendary poem:

"This bayberry candle comes from a friend
So Christmas Eve or New Years Eve burn it down to the end.
For a bayberry candle burned to the socket,
Will bring joy to the heart and gold to the pocket."
