Hanukkah (begins at sundown)

The Festival of Lights, or Hanukkah, was originated by Judas Maccabaeus in 164 BC, in celebration of the purification of the Temple in Jersusalem.

The year before, the Temple had been desecrated by Seleucid king Antiochus Epiphanes, who had converted it to pagan worship and unclean offerings. When Antiochus died in 164 BC the Maccabaeans, who had already defeated the larger Seleucid army at nearby Emmaus, were strong enough to wrest back control of the Temple.

The repurification is represented by the lighting of an additional candle on each of the eight nights of Hanukkah.

First Sunday Of Advent

Advent is a season during which Christians prepare for the advent of the Savior, on Christmas Day. Each of the four Sundays before Christmas is celebrated with a special church service.
