Happy Hanukkah 2007

"The darkness of the whole world cannot swallow the glowing of a candle."

-Robert Attinger

Happy Hanukkah! The Festival of Lights begins tonight at sundown. Spend some time with your family, and embrace the miracles in your life. Enjoy life. Enjoy love.

Joyous Hanukkah
Author - Unknown

At last! At last! Hanukkah is here!
The whole house is bursting with holiday cheer.

Pancakes are sizzling as hard as they can.
Browning delectably crisp in the pan.

The dreidels can scarcely wait to be spun;
Presents are hidden for Hanukkah fun;

And there, on the table, polished and bright,
The shinning menorah gleams through the night,

Like the oil lamp in ancient history,
That burned on and on miraculously!

And each flaming candle proclaims the great story
Of the Maccabean heroes, their deeds and their glory.
