Rated 5 out of 5Â by Freck Growing up in the 50's
My grandmother always waited for me to get to her house on Christmas Eve before putting out her little styroform church and candle people. She had 4 of these red carolers and 4 black robes carolers, a minister, a gentleman in a top hat, a lady in 1900's dress, a light post and a violinist, and a couple of trees. Always set it on cotton sparkly batting.
When I got married, she gave the set to me. I was elated - but stupid. I stored it in our attic. You can guess the rest. I cried for days!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by McWilly Choir of Carolers Reminiscent of My Childhood
When I grew up in the 1950s in Hardwick, Vermont, caroler candles were among our Christmas decorations. I am thrilled to have a choir of 18 Classic Caroler Candles, reminiscent of my childhood, adorning our home in Connecticut during the holidays.
With much gratitude to The Vermont Country Store,
Bob McWilliam, M.D.

My great grandfather made wooden churches as Christmas displays. Every family member has one. These carolers were used as decorations in front of the churches. When I mentioned to mother in law that my church did not have carolers like my mother's display does, she said - I've seen them at The Vermont Country Store!
Amazing - absolutely thrilled - they are just as I remembered as a kid - THANK YOU!

When growing up, Christmas was a magical time of the year. My sisters and I were so excited to help with and see all the decorations we only saw once a year. The mantle was always decorated in a lovely fashion, and one of the perennial favorites was the caroler candles. When I saw these in the catalog, I immediately thought of my sisters and knew I had to give them as a gift. They look exactly like the original ones we had many years ago. I would highly recommend these for anyone who enjoys Christmas, music, and creating special memories.

I saw these carolers in your catalog and had to have them. I remember having these when I was a child in the 50's. There also used to be angels as well. I love them , they are sitting on my tv stand and enjoy them.

I was in your store in October and began purchasing items that my mother had used so many years ago.
As Christmas was drawing closer, I found these special little candles. I was suddenly a little girl in the midst of all the wionder of Christmas.
Mom, who is now 95, opened her present and giggled delightedly.She hadn't seen those candles for many years. It sparked a conversation about all our special Christmases of long ago.
