Chanukah 2018

Light one candle for the Maccabee children
With thanks that their light didn't die...

But light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker's time is at hand...

{Don't Let the Light Go Out -- Peter Paul and Mary}

Chanukah 2018 has passed. 
8 night of lights. Miracles. Celebrations. 
We light an additional candle each night, to build on the miracles, to add to the joy. 
We are meant to publicize the miracle. Share the miracle with the world. 
There was more meaning to be sharing the miracles, the menorahs, and the celebrations this year.
In light of recent events, it felt powerful and important, to be sharing the lights of the menorah with the world.
Fighting darkness with light.
Beautiful light.

I have noticed some of our shopping centres have started offering Chunakah craft activities and celebrations/decorations along with the xmas ones. While it's all just commercialism (luring the shoppers in), I do like we're finally being a little more inclusive in our 'traditions'. Nice pics
