The earlier-than-ever Hanukkah, starting Wednesday, caught one woman unprepared.

“Would you happen to know where this chubby half-Jewish girl can find Hanukkah candles? I absolutely cannot find them anywhere. I usually order them online but it snuck up on me this year and it is too late,” she wrote.

I printed her question and a number of readers called and emailed to say they’d seen the candles at Woodman’s, Target stores in Darboy and Oshkosh, and HomeGoods in Grand Chute.

Reader Naomi Bahcall said she found more items that the woman might also find useful.

“I was surprised and overjoyed to find the candles at T.J. Maxx’s home store (HomeGoods) last week along with other things like napkins, dishes and decorations. They are $6.99 a box. Hopefully they will still have some left for your reader,” Bahcall wrote.

“Please let the T.J. Maxx management know that this merchandise is appreciated by the local Jewish population and that they should feature it annually.”
