A classic Advent candlestick in the home

Advent candles are one of the most classic Christmas decorations we have in the home, and have looked more or less the same for a long time. But the range of Advent candlesticks has started to increase and the variety has become greater and greater in how they look. Of course, we still have classic and traditional Advent candlesticks in white and red with five or seven candles, but don't forget to take a look at our newest and modern candlesticks, which are now also available in LED. Or why not take the opportunity to find an Advent candlestick on SALE!

Find the right candle holder for Christmas

Historically, an Advent candlestick consists of four live candles that begin to be lit at the first Advent. The tradition originally came from Germany and during the beginning of the 20th century became increasingly common in Swedish homes. The first candle is lit on the fourth Sunday before Christmas (First Advent). After that, the next candle is also lit on the second Advent and so on, all the way until Christmas. In this way, the classic staircase-like formation of light is formed. According to custom, it is also common to decorate one's Advent candlestick with reindeer lichen or window lichen. The candles on an Advent candlestick burn quite quickly, however, so if you want to be able to enjoy the candlestick for a longer period, it may be a good idea to replace the traditional candles and instead make an Advent candlestick with block candles, which have a significantly longer burning time. Then you also get a stable Advent candlestick that is not as flammable. According to the classic way, white lights should be used, but this can of course be varied infinitely. An Advent candle holder in black can be very decorative and create a nice contrast to the often very white and bright interior style here in Sweden.

Electric candlesticks in a variety of colors and shapes

Unlike the classic candlestick with candles, modern electric Advent candlesticks usually consist of seven candles. Here, too, there are now several variations in appearance and color. You can find everything from a bright red color to an Advent candle holder in a gray scale or completely neutral white. Most often, the number of candles differs between a traditional and an electric Advent candle holder. Seven candles are the norm, but five candles also occur among the latter. Usually you see electric Advent candles in a pyramid formation, although this too has started to change in recent times. The variations have become almost endless when it comes to Advent candles, especially since LED technology took hold. In addition to the obvious energy-saving function of LED technology, the small LED chips have also enabled the design of Advent candlesticks that was previously unthinkable.

Modern Advent candlesticks that follow your interior style

Today, Advent candlesticks are usually made of wood, plastic or, in some cases, brass. In recent years, clear interior design trends have also found their way into Christmas lighting. Of course, this also applies to Advent candles. Brass has long been a classic in Christmas lighting, which has once again received a boost. An advent candle holder in a retro brass style works just as well if you want to keep up with the trends! As many people know, today there is so much more to Christmas decorations than just Advent candlesticks. Therefore, many people choose to complement their Advent candlestick with poinsettias and window lamps that go in the same tone and style. As interest in interior design has increased significantly in Swedish homes, it has of course also become important to find stylish Advent candlesticks that match the rest of the home.
