Bayberry Candles: A New Year's Eve Tradition

"A bayberry  candle burned to the socket brings food to the larder and gold to the pocket."

During the colonial period, times were harsh and difficult in the New World. Each year, they would treasure the time when bayberries would ripen. By harvesting and boiling the berries, wax would rise to the surface of their pots allowing them to produce beautiful candles for their holiday gatherings. Out of their joy, traditions began, and a legend was passed on, ensuring prosperity to all who would burn these candles to their base on New Year's Eve.
