Festival of Lights - rerun

As the date indicator tells us, this is 2005, a rerun of a celebration with some special grandchildren!

And a great memory of Marjorie Bowens Wheatly, who has left this earth after giving so much to us in Tampa, FL.  Happy Kwanzaa to all!

The congregation made this ritual full of joy, here the yule log was lighted.

This is the choir I sang with for years...lovely people!

Three wise persons came to find something wonderful this time of year.

The pagans welcomed the Sun's return

Our Jewish heritage was remembered with lighting the Menorah for Hanukkah.

And everyone sang Jingle Bells.

Happy holidays and many thanks to my Unitarian Universalist community.

Today's quote:

One of life's most fulfilling moments occurs in the split-second when the familiar is suddenly transformed into the dazzling aura of the profoundly new.
Edward B. Lindaman
