Manufacturer surveys state that women make up 90% of the candle buyers in the United States.
It's been estimated that 35% of all candle
sales come from the Christmas/Winter Holiday season.
Candles are used in 7 out of 10 households.
Why are candles put on birthday cakes?
No one really knows! It's been guessed that the tradition
dates back to the Ancient Greeks, who placed candles around a round-shaped
cake to sybolize
the full moon in worship to the goddess Artemis, goddess of the moon.
