"Candles?" I said apprehensively.
"Yes, four, one for each week of Advent. You know what Advent is, right?"
"I spent two years in an Episcopalian junior high school. I couldn't possibly not know about it."
"Ok. So I want an Advent wreath."
"I'm good with that, but can we get LED candles, because we've got two small children, one of whom could find a way to set the house on fire?"
"Three of the candles are purple. One is pink."
A long Google search later, I have come up completely empty on LED taper candles in purple and pink. I'm thinking there's a market there that someone's missing.
Apparently, if we were Episcopalian, all four candles could be white.
I don't think Gretchen is planning to convert.
