Lighting candles is a sure way to cast any event in a more intriguing light. But during the holiday season, candlelight captivates us even more.

The Roots of Christmas

While our lives may be hurtling forward at warp speed the rest of the year, the holidays are a time to slow down and reconnect with where we've been. We rejoice in repeating even the simplest traditions-- baking cookies "the way mom did it," unwrapping favorite tree ornaments, or watching "It's a Wonderful Life" for the one-hundredth time. This year we've gone back to explore the origins of some familiar-- and maybe not so familiar-- Christmas customs. From these roots, we've drawn inspiration for holiday decorations that can make the season even more meaningful for you and yours.

Plants Against Cancer
