Traditionally, the light has been a symbol of welcome to others. The original candles were used in the 17th century as a main source of light for all homes and taverns of the land. Many used the candle for signals at sea for sailors to find ports and their passage home. On land, the candle was placed in the window at night to welcome travelers from all over. Today, the Electric Window Candle is the Modern Day Welcome Light that carries on this great American tradition. Christmas Tree Hill offers an exclusive collection of quality window candles and bulbs.
