A special edition art print of a wee little Candle Ghost
An art print of a wee little Candle Ghost

PLEASE NOTE: This special Halloween edition art print will only be available to buy until the clock strikes midnight on the eve of Halloween (after which it will disappear until October next year).

This lovely art print features a drawing we made of a wee little candle ghost (or a wee smokie as we like to call them) who happen to be very important little phantoms.
You see, when you blow out a candle most people think the flame just disappears...but very few things in this world just disappear into thin air, and neither does a flame. No, they are actually all collected by the wee smokies who take them back home to feed the wee dragon pups so they can grow big and strong. And this is a very good thing. Otherwise, once lit, a candle's flame would just keep on burning forever...which means if you were to blow out a candle without a wee smokie around, you would just end up blowing the flame right across the room...which would leave you surrounded by a smouldering shambles for sure!

So the next time you blow out a candle, keep a close eye on the wee pillar of smoke rising from it, because as soon as it starts spiralling about, the wee smokie has arrived. And with a well trained eye and just a touch of believe and imagination, you should be able to see the shape of this little guy as the smoke dances around him.
