Colonial Williamsburg wanted to purchase the candles to take back to their own communities. In 1941, local department stores sold their entire stock of 600 electric candles by Christmas Eve. Today, the practice has spread all across America and is attributed to Colonial Williamsburg, even though the Foundation made it clear it was not a historically accurate holiday practice.
love the candles in every window...
