Avi Zuber, welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks for bringing your question here! I hope you'll look around the site and find other information that interests you, perhaps including our 160 other chanuka questions. –  Isaac Moses Nov 27 '13 at 15:12
Thanks for pointing that out, Isaac! I had done a search before posting, but not by tag. The answer is here: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/33510/… (According to the Taz, light at home). –  Avi Zuber Nov 27 '13 at 15:16
That question needs some work and doesn't have an actual Answer yet. I still hope this one gets [a] good answer[s]. If you want to post it yourself based on the Taz, go for it! –  Isaac Moses Nov 27 '13 at 15:23
