Tradition Of the Courting Candle

  In the 1600s to 1800s, Fathers, parents or guardians of a marriageable young lady would allow suitors to visit her in her home. The couple were allowed to visit in a sitting room, parlor or on the front porch. The father would prepare a candleholder called a courting candle or suitors candle and set it up in the area where the couple sat. The father would observe the suitor and decide an amount of time that he felt comfortable with for the man to visit and socialize. The candle height would be adjusted to measure out the time. The candle was raised or lowered with a peg or thumb lever. When the candle burned to the metal at the top of the candleholder it was the firm yet polite signal that it was time for the suitor to bid the young woman good evening and leave. The father also had the choice to snuff out a candle and immediately end the meeting if he thought it was necessary. If the suitor was highly approved, the father would raise the candle to its highest possible point. This would enable the couple to have a longer, yet supervised visit, as was proper at the time. On occasions a father was known to add a second candle to the holder.

  Fathers from high society to the Amish, on to hardworking farmers and fisherman observed this tradition. Daughters learned that they must respect their parent's judgment concerning the men who presented themselves to the family as a potential husband. She had to defer to her father's ability to measure the honesty, character and ability of a man. The couple also learned to use time wisely as they got to know one another, talking, singing and reading together. The suitor most certainly learned how much the parents loved and cared for their daughter's well-being.

  On the day of the daughter's wedding the father sometimes passed the courting candle on to his new son-in-law to for future daughters. A courting candle was generally made from wrought iron, tin, pewter or silver and fashioned by a blacksmith or tinsmith. Replicas of these holders can be found at museum stores and blacksmith's shops. Original Courting Candles were a wrought iron piece that resembles a loosely coiled spring. A piece of wood sits just under the taper. The unit has a small peg of metal or wood that can be inserted between the coils and into a drilled hole. This keeps the wooden support in place with the candle set on top of it. The candle can be raised or lowered with this wooden piece that is the basic shape of the candle taper bottom.

Wrought Iron Star



This wrought Iron Star

lays into a 24" square. It's height is approximately 23".  The rod is 1/4" in diameter and all is finished with an outdoor satin black finish.    

Decorative stars have different meanings to different people. As the use of stars as year-round décor has spread throughout the country, the meaning for most people is simply an appealing decoration for their homes. The Moravian star has religious meaning, indicating the beginning of Advent. You are less likely to find the Moravian star hanging as decoration, though there are still Moravian communities today with stars displayed on their porch year-round. Pagans celebrating winter solstice will also display a five- pointed star. The individual points represent earth, air, fire, water and spirit.

This is what I did with the STAR, I purchased 50 led solar powered lights
(Available on EBay with USA and Asian Importers) then I wrapped and tied the lights using small dark plastic wire ties available just about any hardware store. If you tie five lights on each leg of the star as shown it will turn out just perfect spacing. I mounted the solar cell to the eave of my house, so that it faced south and as high as possible and directly above the Star. Now I have a year round Star glowing at night with (green energy) power from the Sun.
