BUYER BEWARE. This is my first year doing an Advent Wreath. These candles were too thin for the purple advent wreath I purchased with them. No one carried the wax dots/adapters to make them fit as only Yankee Candle had them but were out til next year. CB said they could not help me either. I could not find any advent candles after Advent started, so MAKE SURE YOUR CANDLES WILL FIT YOUR WREATH. After one week of struggling to keep them upright while lit (I had to hold them), I ended up putting folded up tissue paper/napkins in the bottom of the holders to make them stand upright. Apparently they are not the standard size that fits into the normal wreaths. Who knew? I wasn't aware there were different widths of taper candles before this problem occurred. Now I know -- and you do too.
