That's crazy talk.
Apparently, word on the street is the candle holders in the dining room looked odd without candlesticks.  Well, I don't like burning candles.  More specifically: I despise picking wax out of candle holders.  But under duress (you know who you are) I put some candles in the candlestick holders, just for show (sshhhhh).  So: better with?

I kept them from wobbling with a bit of tinfoil,
wrapped around the very bottom of each candlestick
