In my post from earlier today, I should have told you that my Santa candle is a candle holder made of porcelain. I drop a tealight candle into the fireplace. I bought him at one of those candle home parties almost 30 years ago. I used to LOVE those candle parties.
I think that same year I bought a white porcelain Madonna and baby candleholder, too. But the candle placement was odd and when it was burning it left a sooty residue on the porcelain. Jesus had a bit of a dirty face, but Mary looked like she was sporting a day old beard. It found a new home via Goodwill.
