8 for the cup and plate seems to be another fine name not to directly overly hannakuh my Jewish Resident’s door as it’s mine 😀 to decorate…poor sap. I might even come in around the fifty dollar prize budget alloted too remains to see what I have on hand for shiny papers.
there’s a lot of significant to things. the first line of symbolism is within color. if you’re my age or not much younger or older, Bad Company’s Give me Silver Blue and gold, the color of the sky I’m told- my rain-bow is overdue,” lyric covers the major color scheme of color symbolism jewish – by intent or not. Gold is for god’s glory- thus to make mockery of gold, yellow would be the color chosen to ape gold and carry a far different meaning if one remembers darker times of ww2 era. Silver is less highly prized but often the real money of the biblical times – silver denotes innocence even if it’s tied to so many things so much less than or anything but innocent. Blue is the colour of the Law….think covenant law or religiously as well. But Colours alone aren’t all, the letters of the alphabet thus the words also can be assigned numeric value which meansa word like “living” counts 18 and thus a gift of 1 of something is rather a nice gift indeed. the word life/living in hebrew is and pardon a slaughtering is chai… to my eyes chai as in tea 😀 but I might have an apostrophy out of order 😉 three is another number which while I haven’t the budget to make use of it is interesting in that it means spiritual journey which if thus likely how we all came to know ready steady or seet go or ready aim fire or a variety of things three dark or light 😉 I is after seven thus giving it a regenerative cycle which is why it was the divine seven but more than that. of course there is a lot i have to rely upon the accuracy of wikipedia on and thus pardon me if I’m being semi careful to let this be taken as a try from a non jew at something traditional even if there is a lot of religious undertones within it which might not be welcome…My gifts also carry within them an easy symbolism in that they are from all about the globe and also they any one of them by themselves aren’t worth too much note or much ado…yet watch carefully that they’re meant to be anything but gold coin to a guy not really in need in my home to spend coin yet worth a memory be it a new one or a new one evoking an older one or just evocative. the door is gold the flames silver with a batter tea light with blue edges and the boxed presents ;cardboard tubes as they’re nicer and more candly0 blue with gold ribbon. I hope to keep this under 80 but I know how the box mission might be a despicable thing as I need symetry .
the gifts appeear to be
wasa light rye crackers – bannockburn illionois (scottish sounding eh?)
bnei darom olives direct from israel’s bnei darom
russian candy- white wrappered mild choc with a anna looking face- it’s likely from nyc
cxar nicolause 2nd rose and safflower with black tea…likely actual sent from what was once russian areas if we all should know that the tea of course wouldn’t be from russia, just perhaps blended there.
bosna kafa or bosnian coffee
sassnitz germany’s smoked herring
fundy lemon kola drops… I would find it odd if kola meant cola as in flavor or more or less just caffeine present.. I dont know though. from gyal hungary.
and last to acquire is either halva again or toss in a damn dangerous laziza as the gent’s diabetic and that stuff’s all sugar. I’m not sure.
the tools are also coming just not as a gift for the days… tools are omnipresent and beyond days. I have a make-your-own-k-cup adapter and can get a teaball or two…and have a hors d’ouvres fork for to do something with the fish to cracker thing.
the significance is:
sound about right?
