A couple sets up housekeeping together. They get a menorah and a box of candles. The candle box assures them that there are just enough candles for one Hanukkah.
But, instead, the box of candles lasts for eight years!
All right, I’m exaggerating. A little. This is, in fact, the tenth year my husband and I have celebrated Hanukkah together and I can count on one hand the number of years I’ve had to buy candles. I don’t think I’ve ever used up a whole box.
It is the true Hanukkah miracle.
