Oh Come All Ye Faithful

I almost bought a $50 candle yesterday. This is what Christmas does to you.

(Interestingly, I googled "oh come all ye faithful" for this post. It took me to this site. I thought it might be some English church initiative to get people to come back to the house of worship. You know, a bit of Flash interactivity, celebrity endorsements and a competition page. Instead, it's an ad by Ann Summers for the Christmas Rabbit. Amen!)

$50 for a candle??? Why oh why would someone spend that much on a candle? Oh the insanity of Christmas!

Exactly. You start justifying it to yourself. "Oh, 35 hours burning time. Well that's only $1-something per hour. That's reasonable". And then when the perky salesgirl walks away you snap out of it and think "you idiot, that's still $50 for a lump of wax!"

The $50 candles are what you let other people buy for you.
