    Thanks Rod - Happy Holidays to All! - Christmas, New Years, and Hanukkah (maybe others) - Susan & I are a mixed marriage (she was brought up Jewish and I Catholic), so we've always lit a menorah - below (2nd pic) our favorite one on the final day from a few years back - about to start the tradition again in a few days - Dave

    Thanks Rod, same to you and yours. If you're back home in Australia right now, it's Summer there. Christmas season without snow doesn't seem right.

    I can remember the 8 years I spent in Hawaii working for the US govt, and spending Christmas day on the beach enjoying the sun.

    @Dave:

    I wonder if your wife ever explained to you what Hanukkah ("Festival of the Lights") means and how that festival came about?

    Read all about it in your Catholic Bible (1 Maccabees and 2 Maccabees).

    Hey Dave...have you ever heard of a "Hanukkah Bush"?

    Hi Nick - heard of it but my memory is vague - below is Wiki's take (just a few sentences from the link - somewhat debatable?) - when our son was growing up we had a regular Christmas tree + the menorah (he got presents for both celebrations - the Hanukkah ones were small and not apparently the tradition described HERE) - Dave

    A Hanukkah bush is a bush or tree—real or simulated—that some North American Jewish families display in their homes for the duration of Hanukkah. It may, for all intents and purposes, be a Christmas tree (without any Christian ornaments). The Hanukkah bush is a bone of contention between those Jews who see it, especially in its "menorah look-alike" manifestations, as a distinctly Jewish plant badge; and those Jews who regard it as an assimilationist variation of a Christmas tree — especially when it is indistinguishable from the latter. The latter group are concerned about Jews who appear to inch their way away from Jewish and into Christian theological traditions. (Source)

    Yes as Wiki mentioned...a "Hanukkah Bush" basically = Christmas Tree (minus any Christian ornaments). Lol

    The same Merry Christmas and Good Wishes and for the New Year, and especially for those in Australia to avoid the fires and heat and keep safe.

    But you will be finished your festivities the day before we start ours here on the Canadian West Coast.

    I see BC and Alberta have sent some more top fire fighting crews to Australia, I sure hope they can help keep some people and property safe. I guess it's a bit far for the Coulson group to send down their Martin Mars firefighters:
    Martin Mars - Coulson Flying Tankers - The World's Largest Flying Boats Ever Flown Operationally

    Unfortunately, their days seem to be rather numbered. Such big powerful majestic birds, and dramatic to watch.

    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night . . .
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
