Happy Hannuka

Hag Sameach to all my family and friends celebrating the Jewish Holiday of Hannuka the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day celebration.  According to the Talmud, olive oil was needed for the menorah in the Temple, which was required to burn throughout the night every night. The story goes that there was only enough oil to burn for one day, yet it burned for eight days, the time needed to prepare a fresh supply of oil for the menorah. An eight day festival was declared by the Jewish sages to commemorate this miracle.




I have chosen a simple design for this card, the middle menorah has nine clear rhinestones to represent the eight candles burning and one shamash candle.
