Im not Jewish but I enjoy the menorah lighting and feel that Chanukah is an important part of the holiday season. This time of year is very special, and people seem to always be in a better state of mind. From the fall through New Years is my family's favorite time of year

I applaud the diversity in our community. I think it's great that along Main Street we can have a Christmas tree lighting and a Menorah lighting.
