Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah everyone! Here's the electric Hanukia:

First night of Hanukkah; shamash in blue LED, candles in white
It's not the best picture in the world (thanks to the camera flash), but, unfortunately, it looks even stranger without the flash:

Blur and white noise! Yay!
Yeah. But you get the idea. It's a brilliant white LED on the far right, and a less bright blue in the center. Rain reflects the colors on the glass windowpane. It's pretty.

I wrote to Rabbi Merow, incidentally, asking if we can bless an electric Hanukia. She said yes. That's okay; I already did.

Here's memories of last year at home:

8th night and Shabbat. Maximum candles possible - so pretty! Photographed with a Sony Walkman w580i cell phone.
Clearly, I have to work on my camera photography skills; my cell phone skills, on the other hand, are superb.

Happy Hanukkah to all! Listen to the Hanukkah Song.

Update (7:41 pm): I have to share this awesome Hanukkah songs remix video by NCSY:
