The origin of prayer candles isn’t clear. Sister Schodts Reed of Reed Candle Company says her father-in-law invented them in 1937. Some credit an unnamed German monk, and others say their earliest iteration was wax-filled milk bottles. Historically, prayer candles are a staple of both Catholicism and New Age rituals, often lit in churches or homes. Lighting a prayer candle symbolically calls on the guidance of whatever symbol or saint is featured on the candle.
In the early Christmas traditions of Europe, the Krampus was St. Nicholas' dark servant —a hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long slithering tongue gave misbehavers the creeps! Whereas St. Nicholas would reward children who'd been good all year, those that had behaved badly were visited by the Krampus. So you may want to be a little extra careful when lighting up this particular candle!
