I can't believe I was actually browsing through all the Christmas stuff they have out in the dollar store already but I confess I was.
I bought one two dollar item that really isn't just for Christmas.
I found some battery operated LED candles. They take two AA batteries and they stay lit for 8 hours and go out for 16. So long as they batteries are in it, it will continue it's cycle of 8 on and 16 off.
I only bought one and now I'm wishing I would have bought a couple more.
I put this one in my kitchen window
