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!
