Use a 10 taper candle this season for your menorah
Hanukkah is typically celebrated starting on the 20th of December and lasts for eight days. Lighting the menorah is the most important part of celebrating Hanukkah in Jewish tradition as it reminds us of the miracle of the Hanukkah lights in ancient time when a days worth of oil burned for eight days straight after the Maccabees had reclaimed the Holy Temple.
During the first night of Hanukkah, the first candle lit is the candle centered in the middle of the frame. Typically this candle does not count as one of the Hanukkah candles but is rather used to light all the other candles. With all your options, consider using 24 inch beeswax candles as your menorah centerpiece or have one placed by the menorah which will serve as a pre-lit candle which you may begin lighting your menorah with. This pre-lit candle may also be positioned in the rightmost position of the menorah before reciting the traditional blessing. Families will usually light their Hanukkah menorah directly or soon after nightfall. With its substantial body, the 24 inch beeswax candle will serve as a long-lasting candle, also perfect when used after the holidays as home decor.
When lighting the rest of the menorah, consider using a 10 taper candle during all other nights of Hanukkah. The 10 taper candle set comes in the standard white colored candle but if you are looking for something unique and creative this season, opt for a set with a festive color or design. These elegant candles will add sophistication and beauty to your menorah. With a complete set, you may also consider using the remaining candles around your home. The best part about these candles is that they’re best used to give off a design magazine type feel for any table.
