Candles: 365 is not too many

Remember, our ward will be practicing "No Electric Lights and No Powered Entertainment for One Night" next week (preferably Sunday night March 11).

I read somewhere on a survivalist-type blog that we should have LOTS of candles.  They said that "365 is not too many."  So ever since, I have been buying candles at yard sales anytime I see them.  Here are some I got a couple of weeks ago, I think I paid $5 for the whole bunch.

  1. We can store lamp fuel, but using that all the time will run out quickly, quicker than we think. I believe we should have alternative "everything" including lighting. Candles are a great addition to our storage, and we can learn to change them to last longer as well while we have the time. The larger candles i would break down into smaller longer "taper" candles you get the same amount of light, you just don't use up the candle as fast and you could make 3-4 out of it ( I'm approximating given only the photo) We should have wicks too in storage.
