But in terms of religious significance, Hanukkah doesn’t rank as high for Jews as Christmas ranks for Christians. “It’s hard to not make a big deal of out Hanukkah living in America, and I’m not sure it’s a bad thing,” said Rabbi Rhoda Silverman of Temple Emanuel in Reisterstown. “That’s not a problem for me as long as we don’t forget about everything else that makes us Jewish.” Jonathan Schwartz, senior aide to Baltimore County Council Chairwoman Vicki Almond and a member of Temple Emanuel, sees Hanukkah as having two roles in the lives of American Jews…

David Eberhardt said his holiday decorations are inspiring others.
David Eberhardt is leading a revolution along Silver Farm Court—a Christmas revolution. More and more of Eberhardt's neighbors are decorating their homes for the holidays, this year more than ever, he said. "One house put up lights for the first time in five years," Eberhardt said from the front yard of his glowing Perry Hall home. "This year, I even decorated the deck. Most people around here who did their decks, they did it because I motivated them." "I'd like to be like 34th Street [in Baltimore], where people line up to come here," he added. Eberhardt's display includes several inflatable Peanuts characters, a reindeer, a snowman, thousands of LED lights, light-dripping icicles and a loop of Christmas music. Vote for your favorite …
