That was pretty cool

I enjoyed that. There were some girls I knew through the years who insisted that the gift-giving idea had nothing to do with the Christians, but I think they were either too embarrassed or too proud to say otherwise. I think everyone should be able to have a nice gift-giving holiday just as an expression of mutual love and appreciation.

I am a Catholic Christian, I like your website, I have many Jewish neighbors, I like learning about all faiths and beliefs. I enjoyed the Chanukah cartoon...it was a good explanation for all ages! Thank you!! Can I say God Bless you to my Jewish friends?

Very well written-very informative

I knew about the candles but never knew how it all came together. It explained everything very well. Thank-you
