This week marks the annual celebration of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah. The festival commemorates the miracle of one day worth of lamp oil lasting eight, helping the Maccabees secure a military victory. The celebration is also regarded as “representing a spiritual illumination”. Further, it should not be overlooked it takes place during the shortest days of the year.
Several religious traditions have a major celebration about light during this time of year. The Hindu faith celebrates Diwali in Autumn, as the daylight hours are near their shortest. And, of course, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, “the light of the world”, near the winter solstice.
The Texas State University Libraries offer many resources on religions and their holidays. For more information, Come In and Find Our More.
