A lot of people burn candles for ambiance. I don't.
A lot of people burn candles for the scent. I don't. (A lot of them are toxic and burning them releases carcinogenic particles.)
But I can't deny the allure of candles. They're cute. I have a candle in my living room that I've had for about ten years. (I got it at an estate sale.) It has an interesting scent, but you don't smell it all all the time. I'll be sitting there, reading, and all of a sudden I'll get a brief scent. There's that candle again! A lot of women use them in their decor, and I'm getting into that myself. So I did buy a vanilla scented candle, but it's just for show--I will not burn it. And I hope occasionally, when I walk by, I'll get the scent. (Because I LOVE vanilla.)
With the holidays coming up, I thought it might be nice to have some flickering light for ambiance. Therefore, I stocked up on a number of different LED candles.
I lit my first 4" pillar candle on Wednesday. Aha! success. It was dark and cold and miserable out and the flickering light made the rooom feel that much cozier.
So I'm going back to the Dollar Tree to see if I can return them. Maybe I'll just stick with those nice 4" pillars (I know they make different heights, but they only had the 4" ones at this store).
So -- candles in your home or not?
