The first night of Hanukkah and Christmas fall on exactly the same day this year, which hasn't happened since 1959. We lit the first night candles tonight--and also attended the Madras Club Christmas celebration, which was largely a Hindu affair. There was meat, though, which Marty enjoyed.
I'm posting a couple more pictures of the elephants of Sri Lanka---the one on the right is the herd heading to the river for their morning bath, and the one below is my favorite of the ones I took.
Have a happy and peaceful holiday!
