Happy Hanukkah!

חנוכה שמח

Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and readers!

May these eight days bring you fun with family and a peaceful year filled with light!

I've always thought Hanukkah was a such a beautiful holiday. What it commemorates is a fight for religious freedom — something we can all appreciate. When my kids were little, we observed Hanukkah even though we're not Jewish because I wanted them to learn the lesson of religious toleration. We still have our menorah, but it's a bit dusty...

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my prior post about book pirating. I really appreciate the support! I've been busy getting ready for Christmas, and that has kept me off the Internet. But I did want to pop in today to thank you all and to recognize the first day of Hanukkah.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

I am not Jewish either, but Happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating the holiday.

Thanks, Pamela. I love Hanukkah - when my kids were little we used to read the story of Hanukkah every year before we lit the menorah on the first night. Now the kids are too big and all run off in their own directions, but I still insist that everyone be home for the first night. And lucky me - I get to enjoy the Christmas season as well, because my husband celebrates Christmas. I love decorating the house in a blend of our traditions.
