Make sure it is in a positioned where nothing is above the flame could catch. Start by lighting the highest candles first and then work your way downward. When youre ready for the special moment, take your time and dont rush. Dont try to light as many candles as possible with one match.

Its not hard. One of the best ways to step back from the brink, slow down and restore some sanity to the holidays is to ditch the electric lights and LED Christmas lights and go green. Replace your energy-gobbling lights with Real Christmas Tree Candles. Or use fewer electric lights and add Christmas Candles. Either way, you wont regret it. The sight of your Christmas tree awash in the natural glow of real candlelight will stop your friends and family in their tracks and make them go weak in the knees. Its radiant and indescribably beautiful.
Are all the candles secure and vertical? Are they well out of range of anything that could catch fire? Replace the candles as needed during the holidays. Use common sense and dont take risks.

Christmas Tree Candles are not a 24/7 decoration so its best to light them periodically through the holidays when you know you will be on hand to enjoy them and you plan to stay. This might be a party, a family evening around the tree, or Christmas morning when you open presents.

Adjust it when the holder and candle are in place on the tree to make sure the candle is perfectly vertical. For Pendulum Holders, loop the stem over a branch that is heavy enough to hold the weight and be sure there is enough room below for the counterweight at the end of the stem to freely dangle.
