That's okay - sometimes we need to rant about things (especially around the holidays) to keep us sane and happy. I have never bought window candles but I have a rant against how cheaply made Christmas lights are. We bought three long strands last year of large bulb lights and 1 had several broken inside the box, which we promptly returned, 1 didn't even light up, and the other, which started out great, slowly lost function. It was multi-color, then the blue stopped working, then it was red, then blue went back on, then green went out, until finally the only color bulbs that worked were orange. Trying to find humor in it, I wanted to use that strand for Halloween this year (like your window candles! lol) but now none of the bulbs work. We will never buy that brand of lights again.
