Celtic Illumination, part 250, When is a house not a house?


New Year was a great time to be at Shotley Gate.  We sat on a little peninsula where the Rivers Stour and Orwell met.  Looking out to sea, on our right hand side, we had the port of Harwich and, on our left hand side, we had the port of Felixstowe.     At midnight, on New Year’s Eve, every vessel in port would sound their horn.  If it was a clear night with all the lights and horns it was a fantastic atmosphere.  After joining in with the passing of the hour we would all then turn to the serious business of getting legless.  I had been elevated in the local civilian society and had been asked to join in with the private party at the local pub.  This was a lavish affair, with free booze and free food until you could no longer walk.  My sort of party.

About celticillumination

Celtic Illumination produces unique Celtic themed candles/craic pots and Tartan Candles. It is (as far as we can tell) the only company in the world to produce 'real' Tartan candles. Most tartan candles are plain candles with a tartan sticker applied. These Tartan Candles have a Tartan pattern run all the way through the candle. Rather than the old adage of "pile it high and sell it cheap" Celtic Illumination does not import in bulk from Asia, or anywhere else for that matter. instead of filling a whiskey glass or tea cup, with wax and adding a wick, we have created something Celtic. Hand made, hand finished, from scratch in our workshop. Even the Celtic Knot range of candles are made from scratch in our workshop, Each candle has a 10mm deep Celtic knot that runs all the way around the candle, other companies stick their Celtic knots on with glue or something similar. Celtic Illumination claim to be the best candle company in the world and they probably are.
