HANUKKAH AND CHRISTMAS in COMMON

>> Friday, December 19, 2008

HANUKKAH means a Jewish celebration of lighting 8 candles in eight consecutive days. Its a family of togetherness, the triumph of religious freedom, light, and miracles. Lighting the menorah, saying blessings and followed by food festivals and games.

In Christianity it is a celebrations of when the savior was born.The family was trying to get together for dinner and going to church especially the mid-night mass.Exchanging gifts and greeting cards,reconciliations,etc.
