To have a bayberry candle was a luxury to be saved and relished. It became the tradition to burn your bayberry candle on Christmas and New Years eve to bring blessings of abundance in the coming year. ... The old saying goes: “For a bayberry candle burned to the socket brings joy to the heart and gold to the pocket.”

Place the candle in a votive container, if you are planning to leave for the evening, put the candle in the sick to complete it's burn. Do not blow out or extinguish the candle as it needs to burn itself out, according to the tradition. Light your bayberry candle when the first star enters the night sky on both Christmas and New Year's Eve and allow to burn to the wick tab and go out on its own. 

May the blessings of the bayberry tradition fill your home with health and joy and your pockets with weather and prosperity.
