What about these matches?

I have been enjoying my matchbook cover collection while here on lockdown. Today I was mulling over whether to drown or burn the leftover matches. I noticed that while most matchheads are red or white, there are also at least some that are blue, and I found one with yellow matchheads.

Matchheads come in many different colors and styles.

The matchbox matches seem to be even more varied. I like how the Pan Pacific Hotel has color coordinated matches. Classy!

My wife just came in and saw what I was doing, and warned me not to mess around with the matches or I would “burn the whole house down”. She also rolled her eyes.

But I digress. Perhaps we need to test and see if different color matchheads burn differently. She will love that.
