Were you ready? Did you decorate? Give gifts? Receive gifts? Make latkes? Post your Chanukah updates!
It's nice Chanukah falls late on the Julian calendar this year, because my kids are home from college. Our highlight, though, is giving the dog his present every night. I know, crazy, but I have to spoil someone, and he's so much fun! We say "Hanukkah" and he gets excited for his present. He sticks his nose in every gift bag thinking it's his, LOL! Enough about the dog...
We're visiting my husband's side of the family this weekend. Sat. night will be Hanukkah, Sunday will be his father's unveiling. Monday we'll be home and my family will be visiting for a Hanukkah "party". As the regulars know, thanks to Trader Joe's, there will be latkes!
I decorated with all of our menorahs, and I enjoy the vinyl window clings, adding one candle each night. I use one on the front door for display, and one in our kitchen for us. I haven't set out a bowl of dreidels and small toys yet, or a bowl of gelt, but I will for Monday. (Don't want aforementioned dog getting into them!)
Here's some info:
