Wikipedia says that in their July 2012 estimates, the CIA World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029. Of those, Christians 33.35%, with just over half that total being Catholic and the balance spread among Protestants, Orthodox and other Christians. Here in the U.S, roughly 3 out of 4 this year self identify as Christian. Almost everyone in America celebrates Christmas in some way.

Festival of Lights – Hanukkah

MHProNews would like to wish our Jewish friends, industry colleagues, supporters and readers a Happy Hanukkah.

According to Wikipedia:

Hanukkah (pronounced hah-nə-kə ;[1][2][3] Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, Tiberian: Ḥănukkāh, usually spelled חנוכה, pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew; a transliteration also romanized as Chanukah, Chanukkah or Chanuka), also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical Menorah consists of eight branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash (Hebrew: שמש, "attendant") and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for use, as using the Hanukkah lights themselves is forbidden. ##
