I don’t have many candle decorations, although I did go through the PatyLite phase and I do have a closet full of votives to prove it!

In the Desert Southwest, the tradition is to line a pathway with Luminarias (small bags filled with sand and a candle) such as this display in the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix:

And some families use candles in their Advent Wreaths and light one each night, or each Sunday, as they read a Scripture lesson about the coming of Jesus, Light of the World.
