The Target near my house sells Jesus candles
In the fall, I was on this huge Saints kick because I discovered that I liked Medeival art, and the surrealness of saint iconography, and might have gone to wallmart in a saint-candle craze with my roommate, and upon finding an empty shelf where they should have been in the mexican food isle (side note, why are the in the mexican food isle?), tracked down an employee stocking the freezers with green beans and when he asked if he could help me find something I blurted out JESUS CANDLES, and he was slightly taken aback and long story short, my roommate and I ran (actually, ran) around wallmart, until we had five employees involved and finally found some in the clearance rack for 50 cents a piece. And so obviously I bought the last two without looking at them, and when I got back to my dorm and put them on my shelf I realized the artwork was horrific and Jesus had cocker spaniel hair and looked like a creepy hippie and I had to hide it behind my gnome stature because it terrified me and I had the most dissapointing case of buyers regret because I had wanted it SO BAD and it was just…bad. But smelled like roses, so I kept it.
The moral of this story is to get your saint candles in the hispanic isle at Shop N Save because the artwork is legit.
