Marking the season

Led by a priest, a group of Orthodox Christians in Moldova gets into the holiday spirit by trashing a Hanukkah menorah.

The 1.5 meter (5-foot)-tall ceremonial candelabrum was retrieved, reinstalled and is now under police guard.

Police said they were investigating but there was no official reaction from Moldova’s Orthodox Church, which is part of the Russian Orthodox Church and counts 70 percent of Moldovans as members.
