Traditional Colors for Hanukkah Celebrations
Traditionally, the colors for Hanukkah are blue and white. I have read that this originated with the Israeli flag. There are symbolic meanings behind each color in the Jewish culture. The white symbolizing innocents and purity and the blue symbolizing justice.
I truly mean no disrespect for going outside the traditional Hanukkah celebration blue and white or blue and silver, but I always love to chance to showcase something in a whole new colorful light (festival of lights). 🙂

What does the Star of David represent?
Fun little fact about me, is that throughout college, I had a boyfriend that was Jewish. I would attend many Jewish celebrations with him, including Hanukkah. Wanting to know more about the celebrations and traditions, in order to be respectful, I did my fair share of historical research.
What I learned about the Star of David was that early on, the two overlapping triangles – the hexagram was called “The Shield of David” was believed to ward off evil spirits. It wasn’t until the 1600’s that the first Jewish flag was raised over a synagogue that adored the Star of David symbol. There were a number of iterations from there.
