happy hanukkah

last night was the first night of hanukkah, and we went to a friend's to celebrate. to me, hanukkah is a time to celebrate lightness and warmth in this dark time of year (for n. hemisphere folks). it isn't as big of a deal as other holidays in the year, but it is a great excuse to get together and celebrate. grab some candles, a dreidel, chocolate gelt and a glass of wine. here's to a winter full of light and warmth!


  1. Sounds like a great night! I just found your blog and I am happy to find another Seattlite. I'll be checking back. Happy Holidays.

  2. I love the tinfoil. WE do that TOO! or I end up leaving it in the sink if it's late when we get home...

    Happy 8 crazy nights!

  3. It is one of my favorite holiday
    Al this lights, the prayers and the songs...
    Hanukah Sameah!

  4. I'm smitten with the Hanukkah station on Pandora:
