Hanukkah Candle Symbolism

Variations on the Hanukkah tradition from Susannah Seton’s Simple Pleasures for the Holidays: Candle Symbolism

The “Festival Lights” usually features white candles, but if you’re not completely traditional, you might consider other colors, depending on what meaning you want to convey:

  • White: spiritual truth and household purification
  • Green: healing, prosperity, and luck
  • Red: physical health and vigor
  • Yellow: charm and confidence
