12 Modern Menorahs for a Happy Hanukkah

Menorahs have nine candle holders symbolizing the eight nights of Hanukkah, with one extra "helper" candle to light the rest. Traditionally menorahs are shaped like candelabras, but as long as there are nine places to put a candle (or light bulb) anything goes as far as design. Here are 12 of our favorites to celebrate the Festival of Lights!

Break Me

On each day of Hanukkah, you snap a candle holder from the bottom of this menorah, and place it above. Although you can only "break" each candle holder once, it can be used year-after-year after all pieces are placed in the top. Plus it's hand-made in Israel! $149, Etsy
