I'd like to take this chance to wish a Happy Hanukkah to all of my friends who are Jewish.
As a Catholic, I do not practice Judaism, but I do have a deep respect and admiration for the ancient religion.
All Christian faiths came from Judaism. Jesus was Jewish and so were the 12 Apostles.
I could never do a good enough job of explaining Hanukkah, so I found a great page to link to.
