The Gemoro says:
"one may not count money in front of Chanukah candles"
The Gemoro asks why not וכי נר קדושה יש בה?
The Gemoro answers that the reason is not because of Kedusha but because of שלא יהו מצוות בזויות.
The Gemoro seems to agree there is no such thing as holy Chanukah candles.
How can we say הנרות הללו קדש הם ?
I need the help from the Oilam for an answer.
