Multiple candles

Today we light the first candle on the menorah. 

IMG_6847Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!

And it is also the second Advent Sunday – so we had two more candles to light.IMG_7365May’s comment:  To commemorate Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday, we light a candle each night for eight successive nights.

No, we don’t celebrate every holiday. I had spent many years living with a Jewish family when in New York and then my ex- of many years was Jewish.  So for a lot of my adult life, I had celebrated Hanukkah. And I wish to remember the Jewish holidays fondly with the “extended” families who have been and still are a part of my life.

Happy Hanukkah to all who light the candles on the menorah.

    No I didn’t,
    I think that we may have caused a fire hazard in the restaurant if we had lit that many candles all at once.
