I had the day off on Tuesday and Mom and I went looking for Christmas.
That involved a trip to North Pole City.
If you aren't in the Christmas spirit a trip there will surely put you in one even if you go in July.
So many beautiful trees and and Christmas decor items.
I hadn't been in a long time.
I didn't go at all last year... too busy.
But Mom and I vowed we wouldn't miss it this year.
I wish I'd taken my camera cause there were so many great things and ideas.
But one thing I was infatuated with were these new faux lit candles by Luminara Candles.
We came around a corner and found a victorian styled tree with these candles upon the branches.
I was enthralled! They look just like the real thing.
They also had them in pillar candles too and in several colors.
The flame is light weight thin plastic that glows and moves just a like a real flame.
They honestly look like the real thing.
Of course I had to come home and look them up on the internet.
You can buy them online.
The little flame dances around just like a real one.
According to the website this technology was developed for Disney Theme Parks.
It also says that the led candle will last like 240 hours on two batteries.

These tapers to sit in the window are exceptionally nice.
So...I'd never seen these before and thought you might be as enticed by them as I was.
They are expensive so none came home with me but I would think it's just a matter of time
till they show up in a less expensive version in discount stores.
I'll have to wait for that.
But I was truly amazed by them.
I didn't receive any compensation for blogging about them.
I just wanted to share something cool.
