It was suggested that Christmas pyramids were a predecessor to the Christmas Tree but that these pyramids were not limited to Christmas time. In fact, during Summer solstice, there was a custom of dancing around "St. John's Tree" decked with garlands and flowers. Today, these pyramids (aka spinning candle carousels or candle spinners) come in different shapes and materials. At Green Papaya, we have chosen to work with less "flammable" materials, like steel/aluminum and glass, and designs that can fit different candle sizes from tea lights to large container candles. Start your own family tradition now.
Bonus wellness benefit: Use it to guide meditation. The spinning ornaments can help with focus and creating a sense of calm.
Our carousels come in 4 sizes (small, medium, midi and large) based on the carousel base. The ornaments are interchangeable and they come with a pretty "ready to gift" box. We have the largest collection of candle carousels, choose from over 50 designs.
