Happy third day of Hanukah to everyone. So far it’s been a good one for me, mostly because I think I’ve done pretty good for myself this year. I haven’t had to use any additional candles thanks to my not breaking any, (last year I accidentally broke a couple while I was trying to get them into the hanukiah and stable so they could be lit), and I haven’t had very much trouble with the lighter either. I use a lighter for both Shabbat/yom tov/nahalot (Yahrzeits) candles since they’re easier and probably safer in my case. I hope that doesn’t create halakhic issues. I like Hanukah because of all the lights. As we get to the fourth night onward, I can sort of see the light, although not very much. I do wish, however, that I could find a Hanukiah/menorah that takes standard tapers, as those would be easier to light. But I’ll keep looking, as I’m sure one has to exist, and maybe I’ll find one in time for next year.
