Happy Hannukah to our Jewish community!........may the candle always burn brightly.
There's a Christmas Nativity Scene which (believe it or not) Santa Monica still accomodates for on Ocean Park Avenue. The city has 14 wooden stalls and that many churches take one aspect of Christ's birth and illustrate it (shepherds, magi, King Herod, etc..) in their stall. Atheists have been fighting it for years but it's still there! A very well known and successful Jewish insurance entrepreneur saved this Christian display a few years back by pumping tons of money into its upkeep. It's good that we all honor and maintain the two most contributing faiths to this country. Amen.
(The words about Hannukah were sent to me by commenter Impertinent, who had them sent to him...thanks, Imp)
