A candle is mo' betta'. Lighters and matches can burn our hands much faster than a candle!

Good point. I just don't carry any candles in my backpack. ;-)

You don't?? Wow! Small candles in a waterproof case with some matches was a fixture in my backpack!

Not since the brilliant invention of LED headlamps! I carry two, and one is so tiny I often have trouble finding it.
I'm talking about my climbing pack, though, which I carry most often. I do carry a candle lantern in my backpacking pack. I love warming up my tent with a candle first thing in the morning.

I am by no means a nature girl. My idea of camping is at the Holiday Inn. I have done a little camping back in the day and please believe me a candle is not a good thing inside of a tent. Despite the fact that the tent is very likely flame and everything else retardant. Please find another safe way to warm up your tent.

It's safe - you hang the lantern on a chain from the ceiling.
What do you do when the power goes out during a hurricane and whatnot?

Melinda,
When the power goes out I light candles in my house. Not in my tent. I was under the impression that Lynne gave me was that she lights a candle (not a candle lantern) in her tent to warm it up. That is not a safe thing to do. Your candle lantern seems like a wonderful alternative.
