A Little About The History Of Candles

The history of candles can be difficult to shed light on. (Yes, pun intended. 😃)

First of all, the definition of "candle" can be disputed. For example, various types of torches probably existed before candles did. Some folks consider these a form of candle, while others point out they didn't have a wick and therefore were not a true candle.

The ancient Romans are generally credited as the oldest known users of candles with a wick (date unknown as far as we know), possibly followed by the ancient Egyptians around 3,000 BC. Or maybe the Chinese were the first to use candles, or some other ancient people. Accounts vary.

So, while researching the history of the candle gave us only a very vague starting date, what is better known is their importance: Candles have been loved for their practical and ceremonial uses for centuries.

Today, with modern lighting available at the flick of a switch, the use of candles for many of us is no longer necessary. However, candles are still loved by a lot of people. They lend light when the power is out, and lend a beautiful ambience for home or ceremonial use anytime.
