Why Chanukah is special to me

I was born on the first day of Chanukah.

My wife and I starting dating on the first day of Chanukah eight years ago.

My wife found out she was pregnant with our daughter on the third night of Chanukah three years ago.

Somehow some of the most important things in my life happen at this time of year.

Chanuka is a time of shining light in the darkness - it surely seems to be true in your case! Mazal Tov, and a Happy Chanuka, Birthday...

When I was a kid many of my Chanuka born classmates used to complain that they ended up getting shorted on the gifts, being that the birthday/Chanuka gifts coincided. Did you find that to be the case as well ;-)

Thanks CE! Growing up I always celebrated my birthday on the secular date so I never ran into the problem of being shortchanged. My secular birthday is "Rosh Chodesh December" ;)
