January 2022 Newsletter



Hello Everyone


The year is coming to an end, but wow, 2021 has been another tough one. Most of us are probably looking forward to starting a whole new year! Due to COVID-19, things may look and feel different. Instead of heading to parties, or visiting friends and relatives, we will likely be staying home and celebrating with family. Let's hope 2022 will bring rays of sunshine for everyone!


New Year’s wasn’t always celebrated on January 1. The earliest New Year festivities date back about 4,000 years. At that time, the people of ancient Babylon began their new year in what we now call March. They would have an 11-day festival to celebrate the beginning of spring and the fact that crops were being planted for the coming year.


The calendar that we use, which is known as the Gregorian calendar, was introduced 400 years ago by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. He declared once and for all that January 1 should be New Year’s Day.


And since that time, much of the western world has celebrated the start of the year just like you do — on the first day of January.


If you’d like to be among the first to welcome the New Year, then you’ll want to visit the tiny Pacific island nation of Kiribati. It’s located in the world’s earliest time zone, so it’s always the first place on Earth to welcome a new year.


As for the last place to ring in the coming year? That title belongs to American Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean.


My hope for each and everyone is that this next year will be everything you hope for. Count those blessings each and every day. Spend more time with family and cherish each and every moment that life has to offer. I know I am going to at least


HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!!



HOW WERE CANDLES MADE IN MEDIEVAL TIMES?

In medieval times, most people had candles made from tallow (animal fat), which was a technique first used by the ancient Romans. The problem with tallow candles was that they smelled quite bad and gave off a smoky flame. In response to this, beeswax candles were invented. They smelled pleasant and burned cleanly, they were also awfully expensive and were mostly used for church services and by the wealthy.


JANUARY FRAGRANCE OF THE MONTH:


NAG CHAMPA

Nag Champa is an Indian fragrance popular in incense (for those of you who didn't come of age in the 60s and 70s). It has woody notes similar to patchouli, with touches of musk, amber, and vanilla. If you haven't smelled it before, you have to try it. If you know it, we think you'll love this rendition.


This fragrance is available in the 10oz Clear Candle, 6oz Travel Tin or the 2.5oz Wax Melt. Just click on the size to see the details about the fabulous fragrance.

WE HAVE HAD A FACE LIFT…..Well sorta!!

We have consolidated the 10oz & 6oz candles into just 1 page. The heading “Candles” will get you there without having to bounce around between pages. I have had several customers request that this be done and I have to admit, this is much easier.


I am also working on a “NEW” product line that I am doing my best to get out to you all. Once it is ready to go, I will give the members first chance to purchase before I post the page on the web-site. You will also get special pricing for being a member of the TPC family.


Watch for the email letting you know it is available. You will not be disappointed.

Undecided about which fragrance to try in a full-size candle? No worries, try one or more of our sampler packs!
