National Candle Association celebrates World Candle Month

Established in 2013 by the National Candle Association (NCA), World Candle Month is celebrated every September and promotes the various ways candles enrich people’s daily lives.

“This celebration is just one of the many ways NCA encourages industry collaboration to promote global candle sales and celebrate the benefits and joy of candles,” said Kathy LaVanier, president of the NCA.

Throughout 2020, the world saw many changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a number of industries saw that sales were impacted as well. The candle industry was no exception, as more people worked from home and sought any little comfort they could find. That trend continues into 2021, even as the world begins to emerge from the darker days of the pandemic, the small comforts like candles in the home remain a staple.

This year’s World Candle Month theme is Share the Light. NCA provides ideas to celebrate the many ways candles light up our world and fragrance our lives.
