An Ode to Christmas



This is my Santa Claus candle. Isn't he cute? My mommy gave him to me for Christmas several years ago.

He is in a candle-holder with a nice cow sticker on the back. The cow sticker was also a present, although I've forgotten who gave it to me.




So what do we do with candles?

We burn them!


Feeling a little warm, Santa?


He still waves cheerily, even without a face. Brave Santa!


He's looking a little unwell here, but you can still see his belt very nicely.


One arm down.

I like the way you can see the Christmas tree lights in the background here, and reflected in the glass.


I get the acute sense here that he is reaching out imploringly from the puddle of his own demise.

I am also reminded of when the second Terminator got melted in the molten metal.


Bye-bye, Santa, and Merry Christmas to all!


(Photography credits go to F, direction by renniekins. No actual santas were harmed in the making of this... oh, who am I kidding. He's totally toast!)

Since I was a little bambina, we had thanksgiving candles (a boy and girl indian, same for pilgrims and a turkey).

We were NEVER allowed to burn them. They were lost during the timespan my sister and I migrated around the 52 states, so I bought new ones for her to light with her kids.

And yes, we do light them! But we don't burn them to a wicked witch of the east puddle ;-)

Too funny. I'm sure somewhere all the Grinches of the season were laughing hysterically. :)

It's a full minute since I started reading this post and I'm still laughing out loud occasionally with a grin fixed firmly on my face.

The compilation came out GREAT. I love it. :)

...and it turns out the little guy deserved it. I never did get my official Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle.
