What Chanukah Is Really About

It seems that lately, chanukah has become about donuts and latkes, dreidels and gelt, and of course, presents and parties. It's easy to forget that chanukah is really about the triumph of torah over nothingness, of light over darkness, of our ability to follow the torah and mitzvos. I wrote a post about it last year, when I was a brand new blogger, and had a grand total of four readers, so I am linking it here for the benefit of my numerous new readers. Enjoy!

Good to remind us that our holidays are about more than the treats associated with them.
