Forget-witches, ghosts or zombies: The creepy part of October is the dark, seemingly endless night. The farther north you come, the sooner the darkness creeps in and fills me with fear. But there is a way to combat the shadows of shorter days: warm, cozy candlelight. Whether a tiny tealight or a 36-hour slow burn, I love the gentle light and soothing scented candles. They illuminate my bathroom, kitchen and bedroom with flickering glow, which makes me curl up with a cup of tea and a good book.
