Before today, we had no idea how popular Bath & Body Works candles were, but their annual Candle Day sale had these Twitter streets hot!
See, on Saturday the bath and beauty chain made their $24.50 three-wick candles a mere $9.50. There are 135 candle varieties with more than 100 fragrances, “including 38 new 3-Wick Candles arriving exclusively for Candle Day, including Sugared Blueberry Donut, Cereal Marshmallow Bar and Red Velvet Cupcake,” a press release stated.
Well…folks lost their minds lining up outside the stores as early as midnight!
For those who weren’t going to stand in line for some smell-goods, purchasing online was an option, but it wasn’t easy. Customers flocked to social media complaining that site kept crashing!
But some folks must have gotten through because according to Business Insider, all the candles sold out online by Saturday afternoon.
The sale sparked so much chatter online that the hashtag #BathAndBodyWorks started trending with folks showing off their purchases, making fun of others for doing all of this for a candle and workers reminding customers to be nice today. Take a look:

pardon me and my first world problems but uhh why did candle day prices increase to $9.50 this year? Why can’t I stack coupons online? Why must I leave my warm bed to go fend for my favorite candles? #bathandbodyworks pic.twitter.com/3IoDC9JZRE— DF (@____dfre) December 7, 2019
This #bathandbodyworks candle sell online is a disaster! They’re IT/Web people should have been better prepared for this because this sale literally happens every year. There is no reason the server should be crashing. The host server should have been prepared for large capacity.— Just Call Me Rel (@DAMariposaRoja) December 7, 2019
