I thought this was a pretty good PSA from the Apache Junction Fire Department (the town next to us) about candle safety.
I recently purchased a set of Energizer Flameless Wax Candles, which are awesome, since they flicker like candles, smell like wax candles (since they are wax), and have an auto turn off so the batteries aren't wasted!
*Disclosure: None necessary. I saw the video via Facebook, and spent my own money on the candles.*
