8 Nights of Hanukkah December 20-27 - Candle #5


It's the fifth night of Chanukah. Just got back from taking the dog for a walk and enjoyed walking through a Jewish Winter Wonderland Southern California style. No we didn't get snow and I seriously doubt it has ever snowed where we live, not even flurries, since on a clear day you can practically smell the ocean air down at the beach not too far away. What I did revel in was on my block the windows were aglow this evening with menorahs each with 5 candles lit to, "Remind us of days long ago," as the Hanukkah song says.

As I walked, I saw over a dozen individual menorah window displays including a few family homes with one menorah and some with many menorahs, one for each child in the household. There's even a neighbor having a child's Hanukkah party for about 15 tonight and each kid is lighting their own menorah. That means that after the little ones each have their 5 candles lighted, it's going to be burning brightly over the whole neighborhood.

Happy Chanukah wherever you are
