happy hanukkah!

photo by: scazonKnown as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles.

One is for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. Traditionally placed higher than the others, it’s lit each night and is used to light all the other candles.

Hanukkah begins tonight at sunset—Happy Hanukkah!
