comment What options are there for chanukiah lighting in southern latitudes?
We're in Wellington (New Zealand) at over 41 degrees south - where, for example, candlelighting will be at 20:34 for the Shabbos during Chanuka.

I think your solution of lighting as early as possible is the best option. This year plag hamincha will be at 19:20 by the end of Chanuka here so they'll still get a few late bedtimes...

@BruceJames The furtherest back I know (which isn't very far back) is that they lived in rural Bohemia near Borotin towards the end of the 19th century. (Apologies for not replying earlier - I was expecting an email notification!)
