My mother-in-law says burning a bayberry candle all the way down on Christmas Day is good luck. Have you heard of this tradition?
Yes, burning bayberry candles on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve is a tradition that has been around for many years. We found this reference: “A bayberry candle/ Burned to the socket/ Brings food and larder/And gold to the pocket.” Another tradition says that if you burn a bayberry candle all the way down on New Year’s Eve, you will have good fortune throughout the coming year.
