We are out buying Christmas gifts right now like maniacs! The last thing you want to hear is the Yankee Candle you bought Auntie Susan could cut her! The National Candle Association (yes, that's a real thing) says that in the U.S. retail sales, candles are estimated approximately $3.2 billion annually. That means, we spend a lot of 'mulah' on candles. Also, candles are used in 7 out of 10 households in the U.S. So, I am taking a pretty good guess you have bought someone on your list this season a candle.
