Happy Hanukkah! This year, Hanukkah begins at sunset on Sunday, December 6, and ends on Monday, December 14. This traditional Festival of Lights helps remember the victory of the ancient Israelites over the Syrian Greek army, and the added miracle of restoring the menorah to the Holy Temple. The miracle that is celebrated is that even though only one vial of oil remained, this vial provided light for a full eight days.
Today, the menorah is lit in celebration, with one additional candle lit each night, driedel is played, special foods such as latkes and jelly doughnuts are enjoyed, and sometimes gifts are exchanged.
Bloomex provides a wonderful selection of beautiful Hanukkah flowers and gifts to help you celebrate the season with your loved ones, whether you are near enough to gather or across Canada. We've selected a few of the highlights for 2015, but please check Bloomex for more ideas!
