I’ve never heard of Hanukkah being represented by 44 candles! Last time I celebrated, it was eight.

There are at least 44 candles in each box of Hanukkah candles, enough for one person to light the Hanukkah according to tradition every night. Some boxes include extra candles as they tend to break easily
