Longing for The Light

We're half-way through the first week of Advent, and today is the first day of Hanukkah. We're lighting our candles, and our expectations are growing whether we are welcoming the increasing sunlight of Winter Solstice approaching, or Jesus, the light of the world, or commerating the miraculous gift of light when the fuel was sparse — this classic Christmas song and snowy immagery express the hopes of the season. We just got our first big snowfall last night in Chicago, so the wintery scenes here seem particularly fitting! Enjoy!
