The American Educational North Pole coal features three lumps of coal for practical and impractical applications such as drawing, stocking-stuffing, behavior-messaging, and vigorous attempts at diamond-making. They come housed in a festive 4 x 6 inch plastic baggie with zip-closure. Coal is used by large, bearded men in red suits, parents, loved ones, friends, neighbors, and officemates to convey special feelings. A lump of coal may be used to express displeasure, convey deeds that have not been well done, or to signify when a person could have been less naughty. Coal is used in a variety of home, office party, and entertainment industry applications. Suggested product applications include display in a holiday centerpiece to promote good behavior, and use with messaging such as “Sally did not walk the dog.”
Anthracite coal burns with little smoke or flame, producing a smoldering effect for the holiday mood. With an 86 to 98 percent fixed carbon content, anthracite coal is one of the strongest and shiniest coals. Anthracite coal is also known as blue coal, crow coal, Kilkenny coal, blind coal, and black diamond coal. Stewed and brewed with heat over time, anthracite coal has been physically altered, much like the facial expressions of those who receive it. Anthracite coal has a heating value of approximately 13,400 to 15,600 BTU per pound, enough to properly steam any giftee.
