I'm Giving Away Some Yankee Candles!

Yankee Candle 22 Oz Jar - Cherries on SnowAs we enter the Fall and Holiday seasons, one thing we often like to do is light candles! I'm sure you are all familiar with the Yankee Candle Company . . . they have been around for quite awhile, but do you know the story of how this company began? Well, allow me to share it with you . . . . "Christmas 1969. Seventeen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of Yankee Candle."


Yankee Candles are known for their distinctive jar design and for the wide variety of fragrances (more than 150) in which their candles are available. As they do each season, Yankee Candles has released some new Fall and Winter candles . . .
