Nowadays, candles are used for parties, gifts, and for just basic home decorations. Back around 600-900 A.D. candles were used for light, warmth, and energy.

Pillar candles are used for very long lasting light sources. Many people put candles on a plate, tray, or candle holder specifically designed for pillar candles.

There are only eight candles on the menorah; plus a ninth which is used to light the other candles.
