      This certainly has been a year of monumental firsts! The increased awareness of the diversity of the W101/P101 family of players has really proven that while the games are still family friendly, the entire system is growing up.

      Now I am very proud to have this Hanukkah greeting is another wonderful step in the journey to full diversity.

      I want to thank KI for this new addition of recognition. This is a long over due, but VERY welcome step. I hope it is only the first of many more steps in the future.

      HAPPY HANUKKAH EVERYONE!!!

      I would love it if some of the Jewish members would take a few moments and share with us all exactly what Hanukkah is all about so we know the facts, not the myths or misconceptions.
      @Jester, is it possible to add a menorah emoji to our collection?

      The short version: Chanukah - also known as the festival of lights - celebrates the Maccabees re-taking then rededicating the temple in Jerusalem. Each of the eight days of Chanukah represents the number of days an oil lamp stayed lit. Apparently, there was only enough oil to last one day; however, the oil kept the light going for 8 days. It was a miracle or a miscalculation of the thermodynamic properties of the crude that was used.

      As a side note:

      The term "festival of lights" comes from a celestial event that pre-dates Chanukah, Christmas, and Jesus. The ancients didn't quite understand why once a year, the sun stayed out less and less and dropped lower and lower towards the horizon. As the winter solstice was nearing, and the weather was getting colder, tribal folks feared they had done something wrong. So the ancients would decorate their homes inside and outside with light - to bring back the sun - which crept lower and lower in the horizon and spending less and less time in the sky. Ancient folks kept their houses decorated with lights until the tribal leaders (who understood the celestial solstice and equinoxes) told the ancients the sun was returning. We keep the tradition of bringing lights into the home during the winter solstice too, and have tied Chanukah and Christmas to the celestial event - the winter solstice. Chanukah has kept the ancient expression, "festival of lights" tied to it's celebration.

      While i do not consider myself Jewish. on my mothers side it is mostly Jewish and i was raised to respect the religion. pretty much the holiday is celebrated with the Maccabees(also spelled Machabees) defeating the Syrian army which was actually part of the Seleucid Empire(a Hellenistic Greek state that was formed after the death of Alexander the Great.). It also reduced the influences of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judism. One of the miracles was they had only enough oil for one day but it lasted for eight days.
