It's the most wonderful time of the year! You know what I'm speaking of. The period of the year we all have been waiting for...The new season of Downton Abbey! So let the countdown begin. We are little more than a month away from the new season. If you're like me, you've seen enough of the previews to know season four is going to be major!

Candles Burning Brightly - More than two thousand years ago, in the days of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, the religious life of the Jews was brought almost to a halt by the ancient Greeks.
