This is my blue taper baptism candle/christening candle. It's a great gift and memory for your little boy, godchild, grandchild, nephew, a friend's baby or for the grandparents/godparents. You can use it during the celebration at church or/and as a centerpiece at your celebration dinner. In my family it's tradition to light our kids baptism candle each year on their birthday as their special and unique birthday light! I've also heard that people re-light it every year on the baptism day which is also a great way to remember that special day!

I used a white, unscented taper candle. It is decorated with different shaded blue wax sheets and golden decorations and christian symbols: the golden cross with Svarowski rhinestone, the fish and water.

All my candles are unique. You won't be able to find another one just like yours! This candle is ready to ship! If you like what you see in the pictures you're going to love what you get! They are so much nicer than I'm able to capture in the pictures! Please feel free to contact me before ordering if you have any questions or prefer a different color combination. You can also buy this candle in a set of two for twins as exemplary shown in the last picture.

The candles ship carefully wrapped in bubble foil and/or peanuts and in recycled boxes - if possible. And that's a great way to store them for later, too!

All my products are made in a smoke-free home.

***********************
Symbolic Meanings:

> Cross:
For Christians the cross became a symbol not only of Jesus' death but also of his Resurrection.

> Ichthus / Fish:
Ichthus is the Greek word for fish (ΙΧΘΥΣ). The initials of the word Ichthus are also used as a Christian acronym of the following Greek words:

I=Jesus
Ch=Christ
Th=Theou (God's)
U=Uios (Son)
S=Soter (Savior)

Using the Ichthus acronym IChThUS means "Jesus Christ, God's Son, Savior".

The Ichthus / Fish was chosen as an early secret Symbol indicating that the person who knew the meaning of the Ichthus was a Christian and safe to associate with. Being a Christian was extremely dangerous for hundreds of years following the life of Jesus due to the persecutions of the pagan Roman Emperors.

> Water:"
Signifies the cleansing of the body and soul of sins.
