We're going to try a different approach to What Am I? as this item is not photogenic. So I'm stealing borrowing the format from Lori's Childhood Trivia. Each day I will post a new clue to the item. To get you started I'll tell you that it's something that has significance from my childhood and I was prompted to do this What Am I? with it when Hilary brought it home last week.
No Winners yet! Here's the list of what we know it isn't:
a Saint Bernard dog
a religious candle
a statue of St Anthony
St Elmo's Fire
So without further ado, here is your next clue
Don't forget you can win this item if you are the first to guess what it is!
