The festival of lights, where we celebrate the rededication of the Holy Temple and the miracle of a small drop of oil that lasted 8 days!

We set our menorah in a window where everyone can see the light, we eat fried foods, latkes and doughnuts in particular and we play games and generally have a good time.

Tonight is the first night of Chanukah and Aaron has been asking us everyday for a week when we will be lighting the menorah.  I cant wait to see his face tonight.

My brother Matt brought this menorah all the way from Israel for us. One of my most prized possessions

I also got my mom to buy me a mini donut maker from Clicks earlier so that I can make us some home made doughnuts for dessert tonight (I am petrified of deep frying anything so this seemed like a good alternative.)

For those of you celebrating, Chag Sameach!
