My parents who were traditional in a way, they knew what they and we kids were missing in terms of Judaism, looked down on the few neighbors who had electric menorahs in their windows. If you were going to have a menorah, it should be dripping with wax and not be light bulbs controlled by a switch.
My in-laws also lit candles. That was the modern Jewish American way.

My husband still prefers lighting candles
It's hard to believe that Chanukah is almost over.
What do you light, olive oil or candles?
