Thanks! What a lovely thought. I don't espouse any particular religion, but try to embrace them all.

I wished my dear Sous Chef Happy Chanukah tonight too. He has an electric Menorah in the window and a lovely real one burning bright with the first two candles in the dining room.

Happy Chanukah everybody. It is not just a holiday of lights, it is the celebration of victory of good over evil, may Good always prevail for all of us.

Charlie, as you have seen over the years, Christmas has become so commercialized. It is now all about presents and spending.

Has any of this crept into Chanukah? I hope not. I have always loved the story of the tradition and why the celebration exists.

Happy Chanukah to all our friends of the Jewish faith.

Unfortunately it did, Addi. It is Chanukah tradition to gift kids with some money, there two reasons for it, and thus chocolate coins are popular this time of year. Of course if you already giving kid money, why not give the whole present? Sadly the original message is lost.

And now there is "Mensch on a Bench" to compete with Elf on a Shelf...

Blessings to you and yours in the year to come, CharlieD.

Sorry if I offended you, CharlieD, I only wanted to honour that Chanukah had started, send wishes out to those celebrating Chanukah, and to respect that.

I only know it as the Festival of Lights. No offense intended for not understanding that it is more than that--please forgive my ignorance (do you light the first light from the left or the right? I thought it was from the left, but the pic I found has it on the right...).

Blessings to you and yours, CharlieD.
