How to Light a Candle Without a Match or Cigarette Lighter Felix Wong

Tonight, the pumpkin I had carved over the weekend seemed to be mocking me from the dining table as I thrust open all of the kitchen drawers in search for some matches or cigarette lighter. After all, how else was I going to light the tea candle that was to be placed inside the jack-o-lantern?

I never did find a match or cigarette lighter, so ultimately I resorted to another solution. See the photo below. Not sure if it was overkill…

Anybody else have a better solution? Good thing no friends have any birthdays coming up.

    I was facing the same problem Monday night…

    A piece of newspaper over a hot stove plate will do 🙂

    you can use a toaster to light a cigarette or candle! Just push the button down with nothing in the toaster and touch the cig or wick to one of the hot coils and youre good to go!
