Halacha:

Description

The Gemara in Shabbos says one should give precedence to נר שבת over that of חנוכה if he can only afford one. Why? Because Shabbos candles provide light for the household and are necessary for שלום בית. Does this answer change today, where one has electric lights anyways, and doesn't need the Shabbos candles to provide their light? Also, Chanukah candles are אסור for personal use. To what extent is this true?
