Three!! (also a visual pun in there, if you don't think of them as candles)
Els – I think I'm only counting days in January, in part because I don't think I'd be able to wedge 365 stars onto these circles – they are just too small.
Timna – I am absolutely thinking of you and your circles, and George on his circles, and thinking about how you wouldn't want these because they are too stiff, and wondering how many presidents I could work through in a month (well, duh: 31 unless I doubled up. But we are only up to 43 or 44, so maybe that is a project for November, once we've elected the next or re-elected the current).
