When someone asks you about your favorite moment, what do you say? The smell of cinnamon can bring memories back from being a child in your grandmother's kitchen. A song you hear can make you remember your first school dance. We all might not remember the first moment we used a match, but we can definitely recall the feeling. Igniting a spark for the first time is magical. The moment you swipe the match across the strike pad and see the sparkling flame gives such a feeling of excitement. Matches can be used for any occasion where a spark is needed. From the warmth of a campfire to a romantic dinner for two, a bit of fire is always needed for the fun to begin. Imagine these moments beginning faster and easier than ever with a type of matchbook that puts all the handy-work to rest. With this brand new way to light a match, anyone can do it. You might have thought you could never light a match on the first try or were scared of getting your fingers scorched. Now, you can try a new method with starting a fire. It’s super easy. Just pinch the matchbook with your fingers and pull one out! It’s effortlessly satisfying. When going on a camping trip, one should always carry a pack of matches. Without the spark of a match, the experience is never the same. After pitching the tent, and getting everything settled for a night out in the wild, one always looks forward to the social gathering around the campfire.
