Traditions History of Christmas - Bayberry Candles

According to traditions of Christmas, legend holds that a bayberry candle burned on Christmas Eve bodes a year of health, wealth and good luck. Just be sure no one blows it out because an extinguished candle forbodes bad fortune. Even if you're not superstitious, the bay scent adds a wonderfully subtle aroma to the room.

This is a tradition I can remember the burning of the Bayberry candle in our house every year for many years, then it became impossible to find a bayberry candle.
