To Lillian Eleanor
Yes, you can use anything to light your candles or oil lights on. They do not have to be attached to each other. They should, however, be in a straight line (not randomly placed, a semi-circle or the like), so that it is obvious that these lights all belong to one Chanukah lighting.

Forgot to light
One who did not light the Menorah one night for any reason should continue lighting the next night. The number of candles should correspond to the night that they are being lit.

Lighting the Menorah
Thank you for this really clear and informative video. I've seen menorahs in all sorts of shapes and sizes! Now I know to stick to the traditional one.

I don't know of anyone with a Jewish background in my area in Spain so I'll be looking out for menorah lights in other windows too!

When I first began lighting a Menorah, It was for those who were forbidden too celebrate this Holiday. I love the Jewish people though I was not born Jewish. Am I wrong to do this. How do Jewish people feel about this?

That was a beautiful presentation on Lighting the Chanukah Menorah. The presenter exuded such a sense of peace that is not found often these days.
Happy Chanukah to all at Chabad!
