The kind that I remember growing up!  Now you can get fancy ones that last a bit longer.

Nothing authentic as the one in the pix, but I use an electric menorah, looks pretty in kitchen window.

I was wondering if flameless candles could be used. 

 

Real candles seem so unpopular any more.  I guess the safety factor.

 

I feel like I'm the only one still using pillars and votives daily.

 

I've never liked taper candles because they do seem unsafe, like they would topple over on the dining room table and everything would be lit up in no time!

@I am still oxox   As I understand, you add one candle each day and the middle candle is used to light each one.  But do the candles stay lit all eight days & nights?


just at sundown

the last night is really pretty when they are all light

 

when the kids were little they all made menorahs with nuts glued to a board then painted them.

Just was watching the gourmet show today with Alberti  and Jayne , and saw the host Elise light and explain the meaning of lighting one candle each night using the center candle  to light the other candle each night  on the Menorah for 8 nights .

I thought it was a very nice gesture to have a host explain their holiday .

Think it is the first time I have seen this be done by a host , have seen the Q have the Menorah during Hanukkah , but think this presentation was done beautifully,I learned more then I ever knew about Hanukkah and the Menorah.

Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate.


certainly was ,

@I am still oxox - Your menorah is lovely.  I have my parent's menorah.  It is the one we ever lit and I am in my early 70's.  It is similar to yours but it is a little smaller and very shiny.  I keep it in my china cabinet and it brings back wonderful childhood memories whenever I look at it.  I never got "presents" for Chanukah, my family always gave Chanukah "gelt".

Have a Happy Chanukah.
