In keeping with the holiday season, the word of the week at Morgen's Manic Monday Meme is 'candle' and there is probably a lot I could write about candles being that I love the glow of softly burning candles as well as some of the fantastic scents that places like Yankee Candle can come up with.
Vanilla is always a major favorite as are a lot of the Christmas scents that they put out this time of the year. My cousin Amy tells me that the "Christmas Wreath" ones smell just like a fresh-cut Christmas tree and transports her right back to 1974 when she was just a kid and Christmas still held all of its magic and wonder. Funny how scents can do that to us, isn't it? I gotta get me one of those!
This post isn't about the wonderful glow and scent of candles, though, it's about one of my very favorite sights at Christmastime ...
As many wondrous Christmas lights as there are out there, nothing catches my eye more than a house that has a single candle in every window. To me, that just says Christmas, especially here in New England where old-fashioned houses abound. This particular house is located on Broadway near the Park Congregational Church that I featured in last week's post; I thought it looked just absolutely beautiful so naturally had to take a picture!
