Yes, it’s true–add Yankee candles to my ever-growing list of obsessions. Obviously I’m psycho about my treasured candles, carefully trimming back the wicks and working my coupons, promo codes and sales very hard to ensure that there is always a back-up so the Spidel home is never candleless (horror of horrors!). My husband and I recently got into a disagreement when he blew my treasured NEW Christmas Cookie candle out before there was an even wax-melt across the top! Gasp! I made a desperate grab for the lighter, eager to re-light the fire before the wax completely cooled. You candle-lovers understand the importance of this…My husband grabbed my hand and said, “No, I’m baking real cookies today.” (as if real cookies could ever top a Yankee-manufactured fragrance, please…!) I wailed, “But it will tunnel!!” Sensing my building panic, but sure that it would fall short of candle crisis level, as it had only been burning for a couple of hours, he yelled back, “Not this early in the game!” Awesome. Can we Spidels create some serious Christmas drama or what???
