All candles brightly burning

.

The 8th, final, candle of Chanuka tonight!


Tomorrow is the last day of the festival of lights.
The name of the 8th day is Zot Chanuka.  See why here.
According to tradition this last day is the essence of the holiday. 


Still unlit candles,  just waiting for their chance to shine.
What a difference, eh?  
.
Chag sameach, happy Chanuka!

I like these candle displays, have the various colors a special meaning?
Happy Chanuka, Dina !

Dina said...

Yes, thanks friends, it was a nice week, although shirt-sleeve weather is strange for December. And I just realized I did not eat even one soofganiya/jelly doughnut.

Karl, nope, no special meaning to the colors. These little ones are just sold in a box of 44 candles with assorted colors.

Shalom Dr. Tim Mooney, thank you so much for your greetings!
Yes, it was a nice Chanuka, even though the kids and grandkids are far off on different continents.
Thank you for following the blog for so long. You encourage me to blog more often. I'll try.
Happy new year to you in Georgia!

Sigh... I was so preoccupied during that time in Maryland that I didn't get to wish you a Happy Chanukah. Each Chanukah, I am reminded of little Jon blowing out the candles after the menorah was lit at your home and how mortified Art and I were. He does know better now.
