You know that moment in a scary movie where the lights all just go off and suddenly the characters have no other choice but to turn to candles? Or when characters in a scary movie start to do a seance and they pull out those creepy looking black candles? I’ve always wondered why candles immediately equated to a spooky and eerie vibe. Maybe it’s the shadows that they cast on the walls or the weird flickering it does that makes the orange light dance against your face, or when the candles go out and the tiny smoke goes up.
Ooooooh, I’m starting to creep myself out imagining all those scary movies with the candles as props! Anyway, I read somewhere that candles are used in seances because spirits are attracted to them, but that it is always best to go for white or light colored candles unless you want the bad spirits!
