Does this scenario sound familiar to anyone else?
You buy a candle that is supposed to last for 30 hours in order to be able to light candles second night of yomtov. Only when you go to transfer the flame on the second night, the supposed “30 hour candle” has already burned out.
Yup. It didn’t even last 26 hours.
My friend Michelle told me about these “emergency paraffin” candles, so I went looking — and found…
Amazon has the 100 Hour Plus Emergency Candle Clear Mist for $8.85 (vs. $16.80 on Ebay – crazy!).
It will last for 100 hours, and it can be extinguished and relit. By my calculations, one candle should get me thru Shavuot and Rosh Hashana. And I’ll actually be able to light candles second night without my husband having to go to some rather extreme measures.
