    Since this is a religion page, I was wondering what is this Jewish Holiday about and what does it means to the Jewish faithful.

    Can anyone shine a light on it? I am of of the Understanding that this is the 2nd Day of Hannukah and no one has yet to come to tell us poor gentiles anything.

    Also known as the Festival of Lights, it's the commemoration of the Jewish victory(165-7 BCE) over the Hellenistic king of Syria and a miracle in which a days worth of lighting oil lasted for 8.

    I'm afraid your little tantrum doesn't mean shit. I'll wait to hear from my Jewish friends. The reasons for the early celebration were given, but leave it to the ODS sufferers to twist the truth. BTW, are all your work Xmas parties ON Xmas? I didn't think so!!!
