Whether you're having some of the homey, nostalgic foods we've been serving up this week or dining on takeout sushi, flipping the switch and lighting some candles is a surefire way to cozy things up. We've rounded up votives in the past. But since it's the holiday season, we're getting fancy with holders for tall tapers and dramatic hurricanes.
