About

Candlegrove’s light first glimmered on the Internet in 1995, when information about winter solstice was very limited on the Web. Since then, it has become one of the definitive Web resources about the ancient origins of the winter holiday season. I am proud that many libraries, schools, and family-friendly Web link lists now link to this site as a resource.

Here’s more about the home page candle. Candlegrove is produced by Teresa Ruano with help from many friends.Interested in learning more?

It seems there are more books about this subject all the time. This site bibliography and list of books recommended by Candlegrove visitors will link you to Amazon.com if you’d like to order. Also, check out the comments by Candlegrove visitors. They’re full of ideas about how others celebrate the season in their own creative ways.
