Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Beis Shamai hold that the number of neiros of Chanukah correspond to the ‘Parei Hachag’ which decrease in number.  What is the correlation between the two things?

The Braisa concludes that they established Chanukah as days of ‘hallel and hodaah’ (praise and gratitude) why is there no mention of Mitzvas Ner Chanukah?
