Christmas Chlock

Heat from candle or lamp drives holiday clock.
  [vote for,

Hang this festive, brass or gold-plated timepiece from the ceiling over a heat source, and watch its moving parts sparkle and spin as they display the time.

Though the turning vanes provide power through gears to the hands on the snow crystal clock face, a small, electronic clockwork regulates the speed and provides energy assistance when needed. Bells can be added to chime every half and whole hour. To balance the decoration, a Santa with reindeer or angels with instruments disc rotates on the opposite side.

Hang up, light up, lay back and let this timeless ornament twinkle away the hours.

       Pronounced like klock or qlocq, more like Christmas than cheer.

       This would be great for Kwanza since the kids must keep the candels lit *all* the time, if the clock keeps stopping since they let the candels go out they never get their presents!

       My mother has something that is very much like this. Originally it was suppose to be lit sometime christmas eve and when the candle stoped burning it was time to open presents. I'll have to go to her house and make sure it doesn't have a clock face to it. And no, it wasn't the angel chimes, it looked a lot like Farmers sketch only it was 3 snowflakes instead of just one and a sleigh.
