Hanukkah article for school

I have decided to use my writing skills to compose an article to challenge the very Christian ethos of my daughter’s school as a way of softly and positively alerting them of the existence of others.  It appeared in the schools newsletter yesterday.   My theme was on the inter-connectedness of the evolution of the festival of Christmas and Hanukkah with examples and a conclusion that suggested that the aims in the end are very similar even if not original to either.  Togetherness, lightening up the dark, hope, family!  The article was very well received and was even accompanied by another article on a visit to a Hindu shrine.  I found the book Weihnukkahby the Jewish Museum of Berlin most useful in my research.
