These tall religious candles are EVERYWHERE in San Antonio. There are big walls of them at the grocery store, at Wal-Mart, wherever. They come with different saints on them (though mostly Mary), and they only cost $1-$2. Their low cost and wide availability suggest that a lot of people use them and that they go through them frequently.
I really like them. I bought one of the Virgin of Guadalupe. I haven't found anything online about their history or use, but I'm curious.
