Central to the holiday is the lighting of the chanukkiah, an eight-branched candelabrum to which one candle is added each night of the holiday until it is ablaze with eight lights on the last night.
Growing up, we each had our own chanukkiah to light.
Therefore, we'll light a family chanukkiah again this year every night during dinner.
