Happy Hanukkah. Make this holiday your own.

Happy Hanukkah.  Celebrate December 18 through December 26, 2022.  

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication, is an eight-day holiday normally observed on the 25th day of Kislev, which translates to a modern day time period between late November and late December, depending on the year. This year it is celebrated December 18 through December 26. 

It commemorates the rededication and purification of the Second Temple of Jerusalem after several Maccabean triumphs over Antiochus IV Epiphanes and his forces in 164 B.C.

The Jewish Faith celebrate each day of the holiday by lighting a candle on a branched menorah, saying special prayers, and preparing delicious foods like challah, a braided bread.

The Jews had just a day’s worth of consecrated oil for the temple’s eternal flame, yet the flame burned for eight days, the time needed to press and consecrate new oil.  

Many American Indians have their own version of living by faith, and this alone is worth celebrating.  You are still here in spite the fact that many of the past did everything they could to attempt to wipe out our families.  

Hanukkah teaches the importance of faith and celebration of God's Love.  
The menorah is first mentioned in the biblical book of Exodus (25:31–40)  when the design of the lamp was revealed to Moses by God on Mount Sinai. Enjoy this Holiday.  Jesus did.  John 10:22.

We have been exposed to the teachings of Hanukkah for a reason.  You are not required to join or be accepted by any religion to celebrate God's goodness, or to celebrate this holiday. Make it your own.
