Father and I were godparents last Saturday at an adult baptism in Alabama. I made the candles last week. I tried to “fancy them up” since it was going to be at a Greek church and they are always over-the-top for baptisms. I didn’t exactly succeed in terms of making them just like the Greeks do, but I would have had to invest in substantially more tulle and ribbon for that. Just for fun I looked them up online and was SHOCKED at the prices. Gracious!! I should go into business because I could never bring myself to charge $150.00 for a single candle even if it did have miniature sailboats floating on the tulle.
