Yule Menorah

With all the excitement over the portable Yule Log, I decided to film a time lapse video of a Menorah, with burning candles, set to the music of The LeeVees.

Andrew Baron calls it a Yule Menorah! [ 3:12 ]

You can watch online or download a portable virtual video menorah to your iPod.

In this video I first light the Shamesh, the highest candle, then light the left most candle and work my way from left to right. The three candles signify the third night of Hanukkah, which this year fall on Deecember 27th.

The lyrics of the song relate to the second night of Hanukkah, where two candles are lit, but I didn't get to shoot this in time for the second night.

Chanukah (Hebrew for 'dedication') is also known as the Feast of Lights or the Feast of Dedication, and it begins on the 25th day of Kislev (the third month of the Jewish year), usually around Yule.

Happy Hanukkah!
