Happy Hanukkah!

"Chanukkah, Oh Chanukkah
Come light the menorah
Let's have a party
We'll all dance the hora
Gather round the table, we'll have a treat
Shiny tops to play with, latkes to eat.
And while we are playing
The candles are burning low
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago."

"May the lights of Hanukkah usher in a better world for all humankind." - Anon.

Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends!

Tomorrow starts the beginning of Hanukkah, the other major holiday this season. While we Christians celebrate the birth of Christ, let us not forget our Jewish cousins, God's chosen people, those that have needlessly suffered at the hands of all.

Anti-Semitism is on the rise across the whole, but it should never come from Christians that need to remember that Christ was a Jew and that Judaism is the roots of our religion.

So let us celebrate with our Jewish friends their holiday of Hanukkah.
