Everybody needs to stay connected with the roots that give them identity and history to relate with. The younger generation learns only those things that are being passed on to them by their parents. It is not a matter if convenience should be mandatory to learn about the culture and tradition that add sparkle to life. Like any other festivals, Hanukkah is one in which the candles are lighted for consecutively eight days to celebrate Maccabees' victory.
The count of the candles
It is a Jewish holiday where the candles are lighted up in the Hanukkah for eight days, which is an important symbol of the festival. The candelabra has a center or menorah holding nine candles because the temple in Jerusalem blazed for eight days miraculously even though the oil was only to last for one day. People usually light one candle on the first day, two on the second, which continues till the eighth day when all the nine are burned together. So, a pack that has around 44 or 45 candles should be bought.
The quality of wax
These days are not ordinary rather are very special for the people who celebrate it with their family and friends. People should not buy the available candles as the menorah can get all bloated with wax, which would only trouble them in cleaning it. The Hanukkah candles are specially designed for the festival with a premium wax that will burn with clear light and no double wicks. The candles designed for this festival to be placed on the menorah should have minimal wax drippings and meet all Jewish law requirements.
The time limit a candle should last
Usually, a candle burns for a few minutes, and then all holders are left with is wax and more wax. The Hanukkah, which has to hold eight candles and one Shamash or the ninth candle, a helper in lighting the previous eight candles, needs candles that can be lit for a longer duration. People planning to celebrate this festival should get the candles which guarantee that it will burn for than thirty minutes and even some can go for sixty minutes straight away to make the festival moments last a little longer.
Which color of candles should be preferred?
These candles have a standard size because they have to fit the Hanukkah, which is 5/16 inches to fit almost all the menorah. The acceptable color is two-toned colors, and that is silver and blue. Still, nowadays, there are many colored candles designed for this occasion so that the kids can actively participate and learn about the festival with enthusiasm. So, people can choose from various colors like red, green, yellow, purple, etc. These candles even are a perfect gift material.
