Happy Hanukkah! This year Hanukkah falls on the secular calendar December 24, 2016 - January 1, 2017.
Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights or Festival of Rededication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday that starts on the 25th day of Kislev, which may be in December, late November, or, while very rare in occasion, early January (as was the case for the Hanukkah of 2005–2006).
The holiday was called Hanukkah meaning "dedication" because it marks the re-dedication of the Temple after its desecration under Antiochus IV. Spiritually, Hanukkah commemorates the Miracle of the Oil. According to the Talmud, at the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem following the victory of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days - which was the length of time it took to press, prepare and consecrate new oil.
Likewise, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is dedicated to Yard Safety Awareness. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man forges on with hopes that individuals will spread the yard safety message. It would be great if some people would buy some Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man merchandise and promote yard safety awareness. It would be another miracle.
