Happy Hanukkah!

Tonight began the 8-day long “festival of lights” for all my Jewish friends! Each year, around Hanukkah, I always seem to find myself saying a special prayer for them and wondering what it must be like to be one of the 1% of people who are Jewish especially in our predominately Christian world. I mean everywhere you look you see Christmas decorations and even a “jolly old elf”, but you don’t see Hanukkah decorations or dreidels or at least not that I can recall; granted, at work we do have actually a Hanukkah decorated cookie cake, but I don’t recall any orders being placed for one.

I would like to say I know a lot about Hanukkah, but if I did I would be lying to you. As a matter of fact I only know that it commemorates a series of miracles that took place over 8 days and something to do with having enough oil for a lamp that should have lasted only one night lasted for 8 nights. Other than those things, I know very little about Hanukkah. If anyone cares to enlighten me (slight pun intended), by all means go ahead!

While all my Jewish friends are celebrating Hanukkah, I pray they will be enlightened in their journey of life. (I also pray that I will be enlightened to know where I put my red, Cannon camera that I seem to have misplaced in the house some time between Halloween and the present.)

(On a quick side note, I apologize for not writing last night. I had a very bad headache and I had to be at work early this morning so those two combined meant an early to bed night last night.)

God bless!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
