No. 049
These are birthday candles. I bought these candles for my husband's b-day cake, but forgot to use them at the b-day party. We had a cake, but I forgot the put candles on it.

How and when did you acquire this object? On December 27th, 2005. Bought it at Food Emporium, Union Square, NY.
Approximately when did it expire? Why? I guess the day after his b-day. These were specifically for my husband's b-day cake, so it was never intended for anyone else's b-day. Just didn't feel like re-using them for other b-days.
Where has it been located since the time of its expiration? In my bedroom.
