Chag Chanukah Sameach!

That's Hebrew for Happy Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. This festive, weeklong celebration of freedom over tyranny begins this evening when we light the first candle in our special menorah (technically, it's a chanukiah, or Chanukah candelabra).

Although it's actually considered somewhat of a minor festival, Chanukah's proximity to Christmas has helped it make "the big time," complete with gifts, cards and public events. Personally, I think it's a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the powerful help of a much greater authority, who helped inspire and guide us through a time of great adversity.

May your Chanukah be filled with the warmth and love of family, and the joy of good health.
