This beautiful autumn taper candle with pumpkins is a part of our autumn collection. It is dedicated to celebrating the harvest coming in full swing, giving us all the squash we need to warm our hearts throughout the colder seasons, whether in a warm soup or as a decoration for our homes.
It will make a wonderful gift for your friend or family member who loves pumpkins and fully embraces them this time of year. It will also make a wonderful companion during those cold, dark evenings because when lit it’ll warm the room and create the perfect atmosphere to bury yourself under a blanket and sip on a much-needed hot chocolate.
They will also make an amazing gift for Halloween lovers and those who love decorating their homes with spooky decorations like bats, spiders, and jack-o’-lanterns. A perfect way to decorate a room with subtle eeriness, and a lovely addition to a dining room as the candle has no scent and won’t interfere with the delightful smells of freshly cooked meals.
On the topic of jack-o’-lanterns, do you know where the tradition of carving pumpkins came from?
‘Their origin comes from an Irish myth about Stingy Jack, who tricked the Devil for his monetary gain. When Jack died, God didn’t allow him into heaven, and the Devil didn’t let him into hell, so Jack was sentenced to roam the earth for eternity.’
‘In Ireland, people started to carve demonic faces out of turnips to frighten away Jack’s wandering soul. When Irish immigrants moved to the U.S., they began carving jack-o’-lanterns from pumpkins, as these were native to the region.’
