Thanks Jarkko and Eija for your welcomed season’s greetings and annual beautiful ice crystal photo!

I thought seeing as winter is coming for most of you I would like to extend some warmth with an Australian summer beach theme :)
Also knowing that we are an international community who speak many languages I wanted to add our own “Christmas forum family tree”.
A quote for Christmas:
Christmas gift suggestions -
To your enemy, forgiveness
To an opponent, tolerance
To a friend, your heart
To a customer, service
To all, charity
To every child, a good example
To yourself, respect
~Oren Arnold

A quote for New Year:
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

And also I thought I’d add this yearly event with Leonard and Jennifer singing Silent Night:

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and good fortune to all!
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

Thank you for the beauty of your vision, Eija and Jarkko.
Each Christmas will bring new delights for you as grandparents; and still you bring us love, beauty, and delights of our own.
Thank you for everything... and may this holiday season be your most beautiful yet.

Much love and deep friendship,
Elizabeth / Lizzie

Hanukkah (Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, usually spelled חנוכה pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew, also romanized as Chanukah or Chanuka), also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

'And Jesus said to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."'

To all who hunger, may you find relief, may you find peace at this time,

Thank you for these explanations, Adam. I can never remember which is considered the correct spelling of Hanukkah, and I prefer to use the authentic/original.
