Candles. Unless it's cold and dark outside, candles don't glow their full vigor. As Stick Season shows it's grey face, I excitedly pull out the candles, finger the dust off the wax, and find the matches.
If you haven't pulled the candles out, it's time. Past time. I have to admit that every morning as I get dressed in the semi-dark, I light a candle and head down stairs. It might not be light outside yet, but that warm glow does amazing things to my psyche...it's as if I am simulating a fake sunrise in my own living room. Oh, candles!
Let their glow shed the way for the lightness and coziness of winter snow to come. Hurray for Candle Season!
