Please see what the rest of the show-er and tell-er’s are showing and telling over at Mel’s.
If you don’t know, we are in the midst of Chanukah (there are16 ways to spell it apparently!). This holiday comes right around the time of the winter solstice (in the northern hemisphere, anyway), when things are about as dark as they’re going to get. It is right in the midst of this darkness that we celebrate light with our festival of lights. Each night as we light an additional candle, adding to their numbers, the light gets a little brighter, reminding us that darkness is not impenetrable, nor is it forever.
This photo below is of my Chanukah menorah (chanukiah) from last night. It’s a new chanukiah, as I didn’t bring the other memory-laden ones I had before with me last Spring. On the side, you can see the dreidel that Delenn gave me in the dreidel exchange.
May you find light in your darkest nights this winter.
