The Santa I showed on Day Two of my advent has met with a wee bit of misfortune and is in the shop for repairs.  Meanwhile, the fellow standing in the middle here is his temporary stand-in.

For Day Three of The Advent of Santa (which I should have posted yesterday) I offer you Candle Santa.  I bought him at Macy’s in Los Angeles about 26 years ago or so.

He is a candle, and even has a wick coming out the top of his hat.  Who could ever burn a candle made to look like Santa?  I certainly never could.  So, he has been save with me these many years.

I pack him away each year in the same nice big cube-shaped box he came in, with the same straw packing material.

My, how time goes by.  But this fellow looks no worse for the wear, really.  And, he has never had to go to the shop for repairs.

We continue to have snow, and it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
