Here you can see DannyLee making the little candles for our Hanukiah. This is our first attempt at making our own candles so we bought a candle making kit. The little kit came with an instruction booklet, 8 sheets of beeswax and a minimal amount of candle wick - very minimal! We only had enough wick to make 14 candles, far short of the 44 it would take for all eight nights of Hanukkah.
Not quite up to the faith levels of our brothers, the Maccabees, we found ourselves setting off on a search for more candle wick, but that's a story for another day. Fourteen candles are plenty enough to get our holiday off to a great start. Here you can see the first day of our Hanukkah lights!
