Candles for me were never an item that would draw a geekâs interest towards it. They were something that would add to the dÃ©cor of you surrounding or else the simple ones would simply light up your dark. But, this picture above has left me pondering about the entire purpose of a candle. They call it the wooden candle and it is located in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania, outside a local candle shop. The only purpose you can derive from it is to heavily publicize your shop to every passer buy. I wish this guy put up the image of the candle shop for which this giant candle serves as an advertisement. Must be real fun to visit that shop, considering the brain put in to advertise it, using a giant wooden candle.
