Home is where the candlelight is.
You remember the phrase as “Home is where the heart is”. Candlelight makes a house a home because it bids you welcome. It heralds the beginning of the evening with a whisper. Candlelight signifies that all will be well. Candlelight knows how to do this because it has centuries of experience. We make a personal connection with candlelight in sharp contrast to the electric light plug in the wall. Electricity is never ending, candlelight is not. We share light with the candle; we are drawn to it and take it seriously because of its warm, giving and temporary nature.
Candlelight speaks to us of memories, flickering in and out of view. Memories of loved ones, young and old, familiar faces from our family and neighbors who became family. We light candles to honor the care we give our home and to all who enter – to commemorate a national holiday, festival, or a holiday we create ourselves – a birthday, anniversary or reunion. Candlelight creates a special feeling as everyone starts to relax, the room fades away and we enter a secret world all our own. With all of the noise in the world today, candlelight is a quiet reminder to listen and talk with each other, quietly.
Candlelight doesn’t just happen – it’s made to happen, since 1971, at the Armadilla Wax Works with quality candles for every room in the house and every season of the year. Candles of all sizes are sold throughout the store, with dozens of exceptional fragrances like Christmas Morning, Snowy Night and Ponderosa Pine. Looking for gifts? The candle shop is the best place to shop. Everybody loves candles with or without scent. Shop Local! Thanks so much.
