The Season of Lights

3rd Avenue at 2:00 AM 

The “Season of Lights” is a phrase used to describe the month of December. The light frenzy takes off the day after Thanksgiving, and continues through the first week of January.  The phrase even pleases the Atheist because it is neutral and does not cross the boundary of “religion.” The phrase “Season of Lights” reflects how our Christian friends decorate their homes with beautiful bright twinkling lights. 

I am Jewish and I celebrate the miracle that happened when “light conquered darkness” and became Chanukah or Hanukkah.  The holiday is not a religious holiday, but a holiday about perseverance and believing in yourself and the miracles we have inside of us. I believe, do you?

No matter how you celebrate the season, taste the flavors of the season and try something different without political conviction, and have fun. 

I wish you all, a Happy Chanukah, a Merry Christmas, a Merry Kwanzaa, and a Happy Winter Solstice.
