Making candles can be dated back to the days of medieval castles, kingdoms and villages. Light was needed back then as there was no electricity and therefore candles were used in businesses, castles, homes, churches. Candle making was rather a masculine skill regardless of the grown interest by both men and women in the modern world.
The flickering flame is used in households even today whenever the electricity decides to ditch us for a few minutes. Another use is obviously at churches for the parish to use. Candles are used to create a romantic atmosphere when two people go on a date too.
