Hi, thanks for the feedback.

We've made changes to how our API works and Chanukah candle-lighting times will no longer suppress regular Shabbat/Havdalah times. Here's an example to illustrate how the API now behaves (with 2 events on Friday night and 2 events on Saturday night).

Correct! 12/28 shows only one category, for chanukah candles

{
"title": "Chanukah: 7 Candles: 5:35pm",
"memo": "The Jewish festival of rededication, also known as the Festival of Lights",
"hebrew": "חנוכה: ז׳ נרות",
"link": "https://www.hebcal.com/holidays/chanukah",
"subcat": "major",
"category": "holiday",
"date": "2019-12-28T17:35:00-05:00"
}
