"Shehekeyanu" meets "Woo pig sooie!"

We bought this menorah many years ago from the artist, Katya Apekina, who had just arrived from Russia. She was still pretty unknown. Since then, she has become quite famous, with works in many places. Here's her website.

The tray under the menorah has a different provenance. It was one of many hog-themes gifts we received from friends when we moved from Little Rock, Arkansas in 1981.

Is it kosher to put pigs under a menorah?

Regardless: Happy Chanukah!
