A week from today will be the 8th and final day of Chanukah and Christmas Eve. Each holiday has religious, cultural, and family rituals, traditions, songs, foods, gifts, greetings, festivities, and messages that are practiced across the globe.
The joyfulness and blessings of this season are spoken with the good wishes people exchange with one another. My Blue Heart and my Green Brain contemplate how remarkably life-changing our homes, communities, and the world would be if people greeted and treated one another, were as concerned about each other, and were as generous toward others, as they are at this time of year!
Today, I read an anonymous quote from my dear friend Michelle Bracken’s niece, Stacey Adams. The following is the relevant message for today’s world. “May the lights of Hanukkah usher in a better world for all humankind.”
If we all combined the meaningful messages of Chanukah and Christmas, we each would make a personal contribution to creating a better world and practice “Tikkun Olam,” which is the Hebrew expression for “Repairing and Healing the World”!
The Message of Chanukah is: The freedom to practice your religious and cultural beliefs and to respect other individuals’ diversity.
The Message of Christmas is: Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Mankind.
Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Mankind by honoring a person’s freedom to practice his or her religious and cultural beliefs and to respect other individuals’ diversity!
Best Wishes to everyone for a Happy Chanukah and a Merry Christmas filled with an abundance of Peace, Joy, Love, Good Health, Fun, Laughter, Compassion and Caring for a Better World for all Humankind!
