You may notice there is no pet in this picture of the Menorrah.  Our furry friends should not be near lit candles or open flames.  Keeping your pet safe during Hanukkah will help to ensure that all family members enjoy the holiday, including the four-footed ones.

Traditions are an important part of life, but keeping our best friends safe is a vital part of preparation for any celebration.  You can still enjoy the holidays and observances and make small adjustments to protect the furry members of the family.



The Alabama Senate has approved a bill that the sponsor says will keep education about Christmas and Hanukkah in public schools.

The Senate voted 22-7 Thursday for the bill by Republican Sen. Gerald Allen of Tuscaloosa. His bill now goes to the House for consideration.

Allen's bill allows schools to educate students about the history of traditional winter celebrations and allows student and staff to exchange traditional greetings.


Pet owners love to share the holidays with their animal companions, but we have to be careful.  Some of our holiday traditions may not be pet-friendly!
