Do people still burn candles all over their homes like they did in the 1960's?

    Do you remember those good old hippy days?

    Most definitely yes would be my answer! I absolutely adore candles and candle holders. I have had over 100 displayed throughout my apartment in all rooms and hall! I have a big wrought iron wheel on the wall holding 14 glasses for candles which is my favourite. Luckily my partner is an equally keen candle lover and we always end up adding to the collection when abroad. Long live the hippy days!!

    Oh yes, I sure do.  I love candles, especially with all the new scents nowadays.  My daughter loves them as well, but I have to watch her as she forgets about them.  At Christmas they make those that are scented with cinnamon and just all types of delicious-smelling scents.  I am like Suzie HQ, as I have votives on my dining room wall in wrought iron pieces on either side of the very large window.

    I do remember when candles were all the rage, but I believe that because of safety information spread across the news and airways, people are becoming more reluctant to do so. I also think that families with small children probably would more likely not burn candles, in contrast to what they might have done in the past. I have seen, however, quite a number of "flameless" candles, and while they may not have the same ambiance as the lit ones, they are seemingly safer.

    .the heated wax melter seems all the rage in my region,... scentcy, (how you spell it i've no idea),... the generic brand offered by wally,... and of course all the stylish melters that plug in and use a light bulb to heat the scented wax. seems so much nicer than the days of candle heated porpouri,.. (once more, no idea how you spell that)...............and soo much safer than open flames every where in your home,.....

    there was a time when all reasonable well trained humans knew and understood the ramifications of an open flame,.... not so any more,.... so we melt our scented wax,... with a light bulb that is properly arranged to mimic a flame,..... in a stylish gadget that costs the ubiquitous 19.95 plus tax

    you’ve inspired me,…. When I get home I shall light a candle,…. And remember the good ol days.

    I guess I must still be the 'flower child' my kids and siblings accuse me of, haha    I love candles and use them throughout my house for aesthetic purposes and ambience.  Love the aroma.    And, I love to relax in the tub and have a candle burning at the side.
