When driving around town at night I have always admired houses who put candles in their windows; it gives a house such a welcoming feeling of homeyness. When we moved into Kindlewick I immediately thought that this was a house that looked like it needed candles in the windows. Unfortunately back in May I could not find any.
Now the Christmas season is approaching and electric candles are beginning to make an appearance. I have seen several in stores here and there. At last, I found some at Bed, Bath and Beyond that were exactly what I was looking for. They were not battery operated but each had a cord and plug. Not only that, but they were equipped with an electronic sensor so they turn on automatically at night. Perfect!
I put one in each front window. Now our house has lovely candlelight shining out in the darkness which is coming ever earlier. Best of all, I don't have to remember to turn them all on!
