Christmas Candle

Garringreen, Kilkenny, Ireland

Warm Christmas candles remind us of the magi, the wonderfully wise men who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. As William Sydney Porter explains, "They invented the art of giving Christmas presents. Being wise, their gifts were no doubt wise ones, possibly bearing the privilege of exchange in case of duplication."
