Candles are used in many different aspects. They can be used for ceremonies, such as weddings or rituals, or as decoration because of their varying colors, shapes, sizes, and how they can be presented. Usually, candles give off a scent and when lit the scent disperses around the area creating an atmosphere. For example, many people light evergreen, cinnamon, or gingerbread scented candles around Christmas time. They can also be used in emergency situations, like when the power goes out in your house. In old times when there electricity wasn't around, people made candles and lit them to provide a light source for their home.

Wax candles are still the top dog when it comes to candles.Flamless candles look so FAKE. The point of lighting a candle is to give a great essence to a room and to give a small scent to an area. Flamless candles don't do that. They provide fake yellow light and barely give out a foot of light. Flamesless= useless and Wax = the BEST.
