One of the things that shoppers most look forward to every year is Bath & Body Works' annual Candle Day sale, which typically lands right in the middle of the holiday season.

This event is highly anticipated because Bath & Body Works' $24.50 3-wick candles are typically up to 75% off. 

As of right now, the company is super secretive about when exactly the sale will happen. However, based on past experience, we can basically figure out when the sale is happening and be able to plan ahead. 

National Today, a daily holiday calendar website, says that Candle Day is on Saturday, December 5, 2020. The first Saturday of December is typically when Bath & Body Works hosts its sale.

According to the Bath & Body Works website, we do know that the sale will happen for one day online and three days in-store only. They say they'll be waiting until a few days out to announce the exact date(s) of the sale, but confirm that the sale will happen in the lead-up to Christmas. 

These are a few other bits of information to know, shared by Bath & Body Works: 

  • There will be over 100 candle options that are part of the sale. This includes year-round favorites, Christmas scents, and other surprises that they haven't yet announced. The site alludes to bringing back scents from years past, along with brand new scents. 
  • They recommend making a list of your must-have scents, including non-holiday scents to burn after the holidays are over. 
  • If you're shopping in the store, bring a friend with you. Obviously they want you to spend as much as possible, but all that heavy wax & glass is going to be really difficult for one person to carry out to the car. So, having a helper or two with you will save you some trouble. 
  • Plan to purchase both online as well as in-store, because inventory may be tight or will vary by location. And if online inventory is tight, a store may have what you're looking for.
