The Candlemaker was a hardworking tradesman. In Dickensian times, candlelight was used for most ordinary activities, from dining and playing cards to cooking, particularly in areas where there was no gas, until finally eclipsed by electric light. One of the first records of candles being used at Christmas was during the middle ages where a big candle was used to represent the star of Bethlehem. As Christmas is a religious Christian festival, Jesus is known as ‘the light of the world’, this is where the tradition may have started, and where the symbolism comes from.
