Chanukkah Sameach!

Today the Chanukah begins, another commemoration of the rededication of the Jewish people starts (and one of the most know traditions on the Jew calendar) when the light burns for 8 days on the menorah.

Kind of ironic the existence of this holiday in the modern world as the most famous holiday in the Jew calendar, maybe because of its proximity with Christmas (and the similarity of gift’s giving); in the past other civilisations tried to eliminate it but a miracle happened instead. These days are supposed to be full of reflection, rededication and renewing votes.

Anyway, I am not going to explain the Chanukah or its significance; if you are Jewish then “Chanukkah Sameach!”, if you are not but want to know a bit more click here... And if you don’t like Chanukah at all (maybe you don’t like Jews) then happy holidays and let the joyful inside and the hate out.



Happy Holidays to you Rod, enjoy these days!!
