Celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas Eve

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:

No Christmas without Hanukkah

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!

    • Paul, many blessings to you and the blessed people of PNG! As “lost tribes,” I am grateful that the God who sees all, sees you and knows you…and calls you His own! I join you in blessing Israel, and I pray that my country (the United States) will bless Israel according to Genesis 12:3 also. I am praying that the Light of Jesus Christ shines brightly in you and through you, and that the God of Abraham will draw His lost tribe home! Shalom…and many blessings!
