Hey gang! It’s not often that Hanukkah and Christmas coincide, but this year Hanukkah and Christmas Eve both occur tonight! Hanukkah is an 8-day celebration, so it will outlive Christmas this year, but I love the fact that Christians and Jews will celebrate simultaneously today!
I want to share a post that I wrote a little over a year ago when I celebrated the beginning of Hanukkah in Jerusalem. It was a very special time, and I was reminded that, without Hanukkah, there would be no Christmas! Please take time to read it:
To my Jewish friends around the world, I wish you the most joyous of Hanukkah seasons. Likewise, to my Christian friends across the globe, have a blessed Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Jesus our Savior!
