I bought this cute mini menorah at Target, just in time for Chanukah. When you plug it into the USB port of a computer, it lights up in a multitude of cool colors.
Sidebar: Unfortunately, I dropped the box containing the menorah, breaking off a “candle.” I like to think it makes it unique . . . rather than it makes me a klutz.
Blue is a natural color for a menorah, because it’s one of the traditional Chanukah colors (along with white and silver). But the little candelabrum’s manufacturer decided to throw in a bunch of other hues for our viewing pleasure.
And gold. After that, the color choices are downright mystifying . . . if you’re Jewish.
Hmmm . . . red reminds me of another holiday that’s popular this time of year.
I think our USB mini menorah is a little too festive for Chanukah!
