Banish the darkness with a Festival of Light- no matter what your religion

My aversion to Hanukkah streetlights, national-religious pride and surprising similarities between different light festivals- all explored here. The lights put up in Israel around the time of the winter festival of Hanukkah evoke mixed feelings for me. You probably think that's strange- why would those neon blue 'hannukiahs' and garish yellow strings of lights do anything but fill my heart with festive cheer?!
