But weren't there only 16 hidden righteous? :-\ Or are there more than one versions of that number?

I didn't know about the 16 hidden righteous ones- please send me the sources for your version.

I've checked Wikipedia also, and there's seemingly no such thing there anywhere either. I must've heard it wrong, or remembered it wrong.

I'm fine, thank You very much for caring. :-) Hope You had a Happy Hanukkah, and that You'll have a Happy New Year as well! :-) I wish You all the health and happiness in the world! :-)
