Candles in the Windows

Posted on Monday, July 9th, 2012 at 3:07 am

One of the older traditions celebrating St Brigids day way to leave candles in all the windows.  Candles were placed in the windows at sundown and extinguished at first light.  (Now all I can think is FIRE HAZARD.)  Obviously you have to be very careful if you try this.   This year we are going to use “fake” tealights that I purchased on ebay here.

These can be easily dressed up!

Use the printables found here: http://www.sfgirlbybay.com/2009/12/03/guest-post-printable-decorative-candle-wraps-from-creature-comforts/

To make candle decorations that look like this:

I’m thinking I might just let me kids colour them in, too.
