Possibly the only good thing about the early dark in winter is that you have plenty of time to get candles going. I do love the flickering light, sparkling glass holders and the reflections they cast, and let's face it, it's just not the same when it's not dark. Lighting scented candles is now part of my evening routine and makes the room feel much cosier.
