I have mixed feelings about the candles. They are only good for one Advent season because they are so fast burning. The price was right. Maybe it is good that one doesn't have to store them for next season.
The candles arrived promptly and despite my concerns that candles were difficult to protect in shipping, they were straight and undamaged. The advent colors were lovely and I was grateful to have found this very difficult to locate sized candle for my advent wreath.
I bought these candles to go into the Nativity Advent Wreath that I also bought from Christian Book, and they don't fit. They also didn't come with the white center candle. So now I have to haul myself over to Hobby Lobby to find candles that fit.
