חנוכה is eight candles (plus the one you light 'em from) whether in Israel or the diaspora. Our menorah that we just made the other day is two hands of clay, with the thumbs overlapping. My wife found the instructions on some website for Jewish kids' craft projects.
I like your song, voyager, though I would call the tune "O Maryland" or "O Lutefisk" to stave off the complaints about Christmas and the Germans that someone mentioned.
Kwanzaa's right around the corner, and it uses candelabra, too. It also needs good new songs.
