Happy Hanukkah!

Today I would like to wish all of my Jewish friends and readers a Happy Hanukkah! In honor of tonight being the first night of Hanukkah, today's Selection Collage theme is menorahs. Menorahs are special candelabras with nine branches or holders for either candles or oil. The center candle is lit then used to light one candle the first night, then one additional candle each night after that. This is done in remembrance of the oil in the temple that miraculously lasted eight days instead of one. Here are some beautiful examples of menorahs on Etsy! :)
