Anyway, for the last several years when it's turned up as we've done our holiday decorating, we've wrinkled our noses at it and put it right back into the boxes. Now who knows why we didn't just get rid of it. Some things just seem to hang on longer than they should. This year, however, my husband decided that the Christmas Candle needed to have its day in the sun. In fact, he's determined to burn the entire thing before Christmas...just to make sure the thing gets used up for once and for all.
Every evening my sweet husband lights the candle as we sit down to eat, leaving it burning until we all leave the kitchen for the night.
He won't admit to it, but he's enjoying the candle more than is reasonable. He's even got the kids excited about it, and they examine the silly thing every day to see how much progress they've made.
