For the past several years, we have enjoyed advent candles from December 1 through Christmas Eve. We burn through each day's number as we're having supper, and we all really enjoy it. I found several for really cheap in the middle of summer a couple of years ago, so I bought every one the store had left - they can be really hard to find. You can also make them yourself; I think it's what I'll do when I've used up all of the ones I have on hand. This is the only candle I burn that's not beeswax; I would love to make some with wax from our bees. How gorgeous would those be?!
And speaking of candles, it's pretty darn cozy over here tonight. The wind is roaring around the house, and the sky is spitting snow, but it's warm and cozy inside.
