Festival of Lights, Happy Hanukkah 2014 from www.ilovebrokenhill.com

Hanukkah Menorah, image from Wikipedia
We are in the midst of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah right now.  Hanukkah in 2014 is being celebrated between sunset of Tuesday 16th until nightfall on Wednesday 24th of December.

The corresponding dates in the Hebrew calendar are 25 Kislev to 2 or 3 Tevet in the year 5773.

This eight day festival and holiday is a story involving revolution and miracles. Here is a simple, 'Hanukkah 2014: Dates, Rituals, History and How-To's For Celebrating The Festival of Lights' article from the Huffington Post website - see also link here.

I wish everyone who is celebrating the Festival of Lights, be they in Broken Hill or anywhere around the world, a wonderful celebration.

Happy Hanukkah, cheers, Jane D
