On the first night of Hannukah, I got home from work after dinner, and my wife had lit the candles and said the blessings with the kids.
I said all three blessings over the already lit candles. In doing so, did I fulfill my hannukah mitzvah for that night?
Would it have been better for me to blow out the candles and relight by saying the blessings?
Does it matter that I am a man? (I ask because lighting the shabbat candles is traditionally a woman's mitzvah)
