Lighting the Menorah and Spinning the Dreidel

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the parties and celebrating with friends.

What's different is that not all of our friends do Christmas Trees and Nochebuena.

Tonight, my son will be wearing a yarmulke and my daughter will help light the menorah.

There will be a wonderful matzoh-ball soup made by a Genuine Jewish Grandma.

And for dessert we will be treated to the Amazing Chocolate Fountain of Doom. (That's what Jonathan calls it, but that's not important right now.)

After dinner, we will spin the dreidel. Guess who usually wins the pot? ;-)

I love celebrating special holidays with our Jewish friends. And they always go out of their way to make me feel at home.


Happy Hanukkah, mi gente! =D
