9 beautiful menorahs for Hanukah

Tonight is the second night of Hanukah, so I wanted to share 9 beautiful Menorahs (or "hanukiot" in hebrew) that I found online.
I find it interesting that candles and lights are such a major part of all three major holidays we celebrate here in the US at this time of the year: Hanukah, Christmas and kwanza.
Other than their unique symbolism in each of these holidays, the proximity to the winter solstice must have had an effect on the evolving customs of these holidays. The warmth and festivity of candles lifts our spirits when the days are short and the weather is cold.
Here are some cool Menorah's I've found:
