Because we have two Abyssinians in the house, we don’t have real candles. At Christmastime, we use battery-operated fake candles.
Some of these candles are pretty nice. This one is covered with real wax and actually smells a little bit like a bayberry candle. Okay, so they’re not as nice and warm as real candles, but they do have one distinct advantage.
When they fall over, nothing catches on fire and there isn’t any hot melted wax to deal with.
