    After glittering my velum it went all curly, I pressed them with a book and that seemed to work, but now after being on the branch for a few days the stars are starting to curl again! Anyone else with this problem?

    I have been doing tree branches (south western trees like mesquite) and small trees in the house for decoration ans well as brances painted and adorned for tables scapes for years. One year I did one that was 10 ft. tall embedded in a plaster of paris base (in a clay pot - looked beautiful). Bene of Tucson AZ

    I would also like to add that historically, the Chanukkah Menorah is really called the Cha-nu-kki-ah and not called the Menorah. The 6 branch Menorah that you see in both a temple and a church is a Menorah symbolizing 6 days of creation and we all know that the 7th day is for rest.

    The 8 candles for Chanukkah is for the oil that lasted for eight days and yes the Shamash is the lead candle that lights them all for each night.

    Happy Chanukkah - Enjoy lighting your Chanukkiah Dec. 21.

    It was actually nice to see a segment on Chanukkah for a change, but I would have it enjoyed it more if a whole show was devoted Chanukkah as compared to many days of Christmas segments.

    Especially if you view Celebrating Chanukkah section right here on Martha's Web site. The crafts and ideas are refreshing! Why isn't a show creating all around those ideas - they are wonderful?

    It's a shame Martha's 'creativel' crafty staff copied this from Westelm.
