Tis the season....enjoy the beat!

It's the middle of Hanukkah, of course.

And it's a beautiful season in and of itself - the traditional festival of the miracle of candle oil by our big brothers in matters of religion, the Jewish Faith. {By this I mean that of course our Catholic faith is derived out of the Jewish faith, they are truly our big brothers and so many of our rituals and customs have origins in theirs. This is why so many of those traditions call to us, to me, and pull at us deeply.  They call to our selves.}

Anyhow, this is a fun video, you might have seen it already but it's perfect for Hanukkah.  It's about the Maccabee's of course, one of the great stories in the bible and this is a fun reminder of the richness of the season.

Enjoy! Happy Hanukkah!

Love this video and to see these young men celebrate their faith! Was just about to post this on my blog too!
I just had to listen to it again, can't resist it and love the line that translates as "A miracle happened here".
