Hanukkah Celebrates Miracles That Gave Hope To Early Christians.
The eight days of Jewish of Hanukkah (Hebrew for “Dedication”) began last night, the 25th day of the midwinter month of Kislev in the Jewish calendar.
(Hanukkah is on different days of our calendar each year, because months of Jewish calendar are 29 or 30 days to always begin with New Moon.
They need 13th “leap month” every few years to catch up.) Is it more than a coincidence that Christmas is also on the 25th day of our midwinter month?
