I love the sparkling lights during the holidays in December. When I say that, people usually think of Christmas lights, which are certainly beautiful, but today I want to talk about Chanukah. A lot of people collect handcrafted menorahs, and look forward to the new designs that arrive in the marketplace each year. Menorahs make a very special gift for those who celebrate the festival of lights. Below are a few beautiful and unique designs that caught my eye. (A beautiful Chanukah inspired mask too!) And don’t forget the candles – I’ve listed a few at the bottom.
