Christingles are used in the U.K. and parts of Europe. They are oranges with red ribbon wrapped around them, an area is carved out to place a candle, and four sticks with sweet-meats or candies are placed in it. They are commonly used in services to raise money for people who can't afford to celebrate Christmas or other children's charities. Click Here to read the touching story behind Christingles.
If you have made a Christingle, what did you put on the sticks? How did you use it?
