Today is the start day of Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights that is usually always occurs early in the month of Christmas, and lasts a bit longer than Christmas does. Well, actually Hanukkah begins at sundown tonight, so we're all good.
I want to wish everyone out there a very Happy Hanukkah.
The gifts I would like this year aren't really all that complicated. Well, most of them anyway. First off, a year (relatively) free of illness. Second, a year free of shoulder/back/neck/arm/hand/anywhere else pain (caused most likely by the problems with my cervical spine) and foot pain (caused by whatever). Third, for my diabetes management to be under better control. For life to be less stressful for the most part. For an end to the coronavirus and a return to some semblance of social normality. And finally, for peace on earth, and an end to war.
So Chag Sameach to all my Jewish friends, and enjoy the Festival of Lights for this year!
