Today I was at a Christmas brunch, and our speaker was a Jewish lady. She shared a lovely talk about the spirit of Christmas, and then, at the request of one of the people at the luncheon, she gave us an excellent detailed history of Chanukkah.
After the Christmas season, I would like to post some of that history — and share some history of Christmas.
Now it is time for family and friends.
Merry Christmas to everyone (since the words “Merry Christmas” are words that mean: “Have a wonderful Christmas season!”). And to my Jewish friends, and to all Jewish people, I also hope you had a Blessed and Happy Chanukkah.
