There are at least three lighting traditions happening simultaneously this time of year: The Light of the World, celebrated by Christians, The Festival of Lights, celebrated in the Jewish culture, and The Winter Solstice, celebrated by all of humanity. These seemingly unconnected observances are all tied together during the traditions of the Holiday Season.
