SEASON OF LIGHT

Christmas is coming and as you haul out the box of holiday decorations and begin the torturous task of once again untangling the tree lights, let me remind you of an era when Christmas Trees were lit with real candles.

This is a piece of original advertising art from the 1930s for 'Mickey Mouse Christmas Tree Candles' (which actually look pretty much like regular candles!) made by London's most famous candle-makers, Prices, whose former factory is only a couple of miles from where I am now writing these words...

Call me old school, but this is the style of Mickey I prefer!
