We caught a special Shalom Sesame about Hanukkah today, and Missy really got into it. (Gotta love Sesame Workshop.)
I believe in learning about other cultures and participatory learning, so I threw together a small celebration, and we talked about what she learned on the show.
I think I might also toss together a Kwanzaa day, learn more about the pagan solstice celebrations…. do it UP. Why not, while we do the Xmas stuff (and while my mom asks her about Jesus birthday cake).


I tossed together 9 candles.


I made some challah. God that bread is good. I always make half of the Challah I recipe on allrecipes.


I made sweet potato latkes. The oil foamed up weirdly, I guess because of the eggs. Seriously, though, omg those were goooooood. I followed a recipe on allrecipes.com.


Lastly, behold the holy sufganiot that I acquired from Dunkin just 10 minutes before closing.

    Wonderful you had so much fun! I suggest you search for Miracle and Happy Hanukkah by Matisyahu – songs you will both enjoy and dance around the house to!
