In Scandinavian folklore, a tiny man or "Nisse" was believed to watch over the household, and a custom came about to leave Christmas dinner leftovers for the elves to help themselves. Dressed here in the traditional red caps and wick tassels, these four elves look as cute and cordial as ever. Handmade in Finland, the wax of these candles becomes textured towards the bottom, imitating frosty beards and adding to the hand-crafted appeal. Display the Finnish Elf Taper Candles in your favorite candle holders or sconces for fun and festive décor this season.
These candles are fantastic. They are perfect for the Christmas holidays.

These are very cute little tapers that I look forward to displaying this Christmas. And, yes, I will burn them, as a dear friend used to say when exchanging gifts: "use it in good health!" Enjoy all the gifts and don't "save them for good!"
