Tomb Candles

November 16, 2008

I bought a few packages of tomb candles for my apartment by mistake today.  I thought they were large votive candles but it turns out the Swedes make candles specifically to place in cemeteries.  Luckily, I looked at the label before I lit them.  There was a big X over a picture of a house.  I googled the label and did a translation using one of those online tools.  Apparently, the name translates as grave light in English.
