HOLIDAYS not HOLIDAZE or HOLICRAZE: DIY Countdown to Christmas Candle

Ashley Johnson

The Holidaze… Truly they can easily turn into a time overflowing with chaos that we don’t enjoy, but “get through” and (hopefully) awake from our dazed and confused state once the New Year hits.

We genuinely want to send some true Holiday Magic your way, and provide you with a fun tool that will encourage you to be in the moment, at least once a day, during the month of December.
The saying “Be a Human BEing, not a Human DOing” is a great one to keep in mind this time of year.

We are combining our love for several things; the Stendig Calendar (designed by Massimo Vignelli in 1966), candles- specifically WOODLOT candles (handmade in Vancouver by truly awesome people), and taking a moment to make a wish, and be grateful each day.

We have created a mini “Counting Down To Christmas” calendar for you to print out onto a label, then stick to the backside of a 13.5 ounce WOODLOT candle (we highly recommend the Cascadia scent for this time of year).

Step 1: Print out graphic on labels (we used Avery shipping labels 08126 which can be purchased at Staples).

We hope you will burn your candle for a portion of each day in December, make wishes as you both light and blow out your candle, and cross out the days as they come to a close.

Step 3: Apply label to back of WOODLOT candle, light & enjoy.

Enjoy, keep it real, and don’t let it become “Holicraze”.

Step 4: Cross off each day in December as it passes, taking the time to light your candle & make some magical wishes.
