It’s that time of year when sunrise is after 7 a.m. and by the third week in December the dark early mornings come to a peak as we move to longer days again.
Though I’m not Jewish, I had the honor of celebrating Hanukkah back in October with a friend who is and she wanted to share the experience. Participating in her annual ritual of lighting these seven candles, we waited and watched until there was darkness.
As I’m checking Christmas lists I don’t want to forget that this was originally an ancient celebration of the turning of the seasons and the Spirit of Kindness. At least that’s how I like to look at it, yet easily forget.
This is a season about Light. Celebrating the Inner, Outer and Omniscient Light.
I wish you much joy and peace this season.
