Andrew Scheer Celebrates The Light Of Chanukah on Hanukkah




Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Scheer celebrated the light of Chanukah twice this week and expressed how he enjoyed the same at the Parliament once and along with visitors at Stornoway.

“Enjoyed celebrating the light of Chanukah twice this week! First at Parliament, and thanks to all who came to celebrate at Stornoway as well. Chag Sameach!” he tweeted.

This refers to the lighting of the candles on the different nights of Hanukkah.
On the first night of Hanukkah one light (candle or oil) is lit on the right side of the menorah, on the following night a second light is placed to the left of the first but it is lit first, and so on, proceeding from placing candles right to left but lighting them from left to right over the eight nights.
