From the early 1700's small lighted beeswax candles were used at Christmas Services for the early Moravians. Beeswax, considered the purest of all animal or vegetable waxes, suggested the purity of Christ. The candle, giving its life as it burned suggested the sacrifice of the sinless Christ for sinful humanity.
Even today each person attending a Moravian Christmas Lovefeast and Candle Service receives a beeswax candle with the flame representing Christ as the Light of the world and the red crepe paper skirt not only keeping wax from dripping but its red color symbolizing the blood of Christ.
