Today's theme required a little research on my part.  I'm not Jewish so I had no knowledge of my own to pull from for a Chanukah theme.  I read a little on Wikipedia, but didn't understand most if it.  A story on my local nightly news the other night was actually more helpful.

Chanukah (2) WLcopyI considered trying my hand at the different symbols on the dreidel, but knew I would mess that up.  I went with a menorah.  I hope I lit the right number for candles for today.  I'm not sure if I got the schedule right.  When I was getting ready to to my candles, I wondered if the candles were supposed to look a certain way, so I Googled it.  It lead me to Traditional Jewish Gifts.  I liked the blue gradient candles.  This design very much resembles the birthday candles mani I did back in January.  I even used the same background polish, Cult Nails Mind Control.  Guess you can't improve on perfection. ;)
