Challenging Riddle Three: Cold and Dark

Question: You are in a cold house in the winter. It is dark. You have only one match (a stick that you can rub against something to start a fire). There is a candle and there is a wood burning stove. Which do you light first?

Hint: Don't get confused by the situation - think about all of your choices! After you think about it, look at the bottom of the page for the answer...

Answer: The match!

Explanation: The choice seems simple: either the candle or the stove. Did you forget about the match? Most people do! Do you get it now?
