<p>Use this wax seal to add a special finishing touch to your Hanukkah cards or gifts! A wax seal on your letters and packages grabs attention and sticks in people's memory because they see it, touch it, and smell it. Most people have only seen one in a movie in the hands of a knight or king, so they think it must be important.</p><p>The menorah is a signature symbol of the Feast of Lights, celebrating the miracle of one day's supply of oil burning for 8 days after the Macabee revolution to sanctify the Temple.</p><p>Interestingly, the story of Hanukkah includes, "...After this, the sons of Israel went up to the Temple and rebuilt its gates and purified the Temple from the dead bodies and from the defilement. And they sought after pure olive oil to light the lamps therewith, but could not find any, except one bowl that was sealed with the signet ring of the High Priest from the days of Samuel the prophet and they knew that it was pure."</p><p>You could also use this seal to secure the box holding the candles. <br/><br/>A wax seal adds old fashioned panache and class to envelopes and documents. Before self-adhesive envelopes, everyone used a seal of some kind to keep messages private. In our present day of emails and instant messaging, taking the time to write a letter makes a message stand out as important, worth taking the time to think carefully and spend money on paper, ink, wax, postage, etc. A wax seal makes sure that your letter is noticed among the junk mail.<br/><br/>The top of the handle is marked to make it much easier to align the impression and avoid setting it upside down or crooked, and the handle is oval so you can tell that it's straight by feel. The impression will be about 3/4" diameter.<br/><br/>Don't forget to order sealing wax! Regular candle wax will not hold up and just makes a mess.
