December 24th: Kertasníkir, the Candle Stealer
If my mom ever had an arch nemesis, it would be Kertasníkir, who steals candles. This is because, about ten years ago, I was searching for something that I could buy my mom for Christmas which was different – she had been collecting porcelain dolls, but they were getting harder to find in stores. So, I figured I’d buy her a scented candle from Yankee Candle. Little did I know that I would set off a candle collecting mania that continues to this day.
