This year Hanukkah, also known as the Feast of Dedication and Festival of Lights, is December 22-30 with Christmas in between. The menorah or lamp stand was the light of Israel's temple. When we receive Jesus, Who Is the true Light of the world, we become temple lights that point to Him.

God created the Light.
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. Ane God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from darkness. ~Genesis 1:3-4
The Light brings hope.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined. ~Isaiah 9:2
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. ~Isaiah 60:1
seek the true Light.
"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." ~Matthew 2:2
and behold, the star which they had seen in the east went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. ~Matthew 2:9-11
We can have
this Light, also.
"I Am the light of the world. Those who follow me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." ~John 8:12
If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another...~1 John 1:7
He shares His Light
in His Word.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. ~Psalm 119:105
He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him. ~Daniel 2:22
The Light continues
to walk in our midst.
Then I turned to see the voice that spoke to me. And having turned I saw seven golden lamp stands, and in the midst of the seven lamp stands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. ~Revelation 1:12-13
Our purpose is
to shine His Light.
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. ~Matthew 5:14-16
For so the Lord has commanded us: "I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, that you should be salvation to the ends of the earth" ~Acts 13:47
