  • Kathy I think I have a solution to your residual candle problem, that is, if you have two windows that can't be seen because of the porch railing.

    Remove the six candles from those windows, add them to the three extant candles in another window. If you can, bend down one of the candles so that it is a bit lower than the other eight.

    You will then have an approximation of a hannukkiah, and make a nice statement about Judeo-Christian unity during the holiday season.

    If there is only one window blocked by the porch railing you could, if you wished to stay with the theme I have suggested, just remove the candle trio from that window leaving it blank. That would be in deference to the Muslim religion which apparently does not use candles as symbols for anything.

    Now if you don't wish me, at the least, Happy Holiday for all my effort, it may drive me to bah humbugging my way through the next several weeks.

    Whether you do or not, I must say to you peace on Earth, and good will to all. ;)

  • I think I see another possible solution. How fond are you of that porch railing?

  • LOLOL! Eric, I thought the same thing!!!

    Is there a window sill where you could put them up a level higher??? Or, just tell dear husband to keep quiet and pretend that he didn't say anything!

  • OKR: I am impressed...no, stunned...by your suggestions to make my windows as ecumenical as possible during the holiday season. Now that you mention it, such an arrangement would be entirely in keeping with my personal holiday experiences. My wonderful brother-in-law is Jewish and and I spent two Christmases in Libya when I was very young, so it seems it would be only fair to make the changes you suggest. And I spent at least two Christmases in Oklahoma, too, bringing the entire project full circle.

    On the other hand, I'm not so fond of that porch railing...

    A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!
