Christmas has arrived at our house. Over the weekend we set up our Christmas tree and decorated the house.

One of our traditions is to light advent candles each Sunday of advent. I brought back some candles in our shipment from the USA, but unfortunately used them up. I’ve scoured Honiara and could only find some very basic white candles.

With the help of some crayons that I melted, I’ve managed to add a colored layer to the candles. They aren’t perfect, but all things considered, we are pretty pleased with the results.
