And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
~~Luke 2:9-14

Blessings of peace, goodwill and great joy to you and yours this holiday season.

That's beautiful, Melissa! Does it spin when candles are in the holder? I've always wanted something like that. You really need to take me thrifting sometime!! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

That was a gift to me from my dad for my first Christmas-- I was 6 months old. It does spin when you light candles, which we haven't done in years b/c it requires mennorah sized candles, and I never remember to look for them until after haunekah is over!

I've seen them in catalogs recently-- but I can't remember where.
