Celebrity Prayer Candles

The origin of prayer candles isn’t clear. Sister Schodts Reed of Reed Candle Company says her father-in-law invented them in 1937. Some credit an unnamed German monk, and others say their earliest iteration was wax-filled milk bottles. Historically, prayer candles are a staple of both Catholicism and New Age rituals, often lit in churches or homes. Lighting a prayer candle symbolically calls on the guidance of whatever symbol or saint is featured on the candle.

Sometimes we just need someone besides the conventional religious figures from which to seek inspiration. 

Our celebrity prayer candles are the perfect funny novelty candle gift for your friends, family or most importantly... you!
