Our great-grandparents were on to something. They used Christmas Tree Candles and this is how they experienced Christmas every year. Lets say youve decided to go green and use Christmas Tree Candles instead of kilowatts this year. Finding genuine Christmas Candles is not easy, because they basically vanished from the market 90 years ago. But persistence pays off. I discuss various sources in another article I wrote about Christmas lights, but if you want to save time, its easiest to order them from a reputable dealer.
Even with these precautions, some people keep a bucket of water nearby just in case. You can consider doing this for peace of mind. Avoid drafts. Keep an eye on the tree if someone opens a door or window or if you make a fire in the fireplace. A sudden gust could pull the flame on the candles in one direction or another, or it could cause them to flame up or burn faster. Enjoy your candle-powered Christmas tree -- And treat it with respect.
So if youre new to candy making start with some simple home made candy recipes, and start well before Christmas so that you can have some time to perfect your technique. And if youre out to make a great Christmas gift why not make that special person a complete candy gift basket and demonstrate your candy making prowess. Make a selection of candies, find a lovely wicker basket and some cellophane, buy a nice bottle of wine or 3 and pack all those candies and other goodies into a gift basket. Very few people would be unhappy to get a Christmas gift like that.
