We just want to take a moment to wish everyone a very Happy Hanukkah! May you have a joyous celebration of light with those near and dear to you.

Speaking of light, did you know today is also the winter solstice? Today is the darkest day of the year, with Chicago experiencing only 9.1 hours of daylight while those in Southern California will have nearly 10 hours. If you happen to be in the Arctic, you won't see daylight until, well, tomorrow.
