Happy Hanukkah!

Last night was the second night of Hanukkah (also spelled Chanukah and several other ways, lol).

It’s a day where people of the Jewish faith light a menorah, aka a candelabra, to remind us of the miracle: the miracle that the one small kosher jar of oil was found and lasted for 8 days and nights.

It’s a custom to eat latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (jelly doughnuts). People also spin the dreidel (a little spin top with letters on it).

Happy Hanukkah! ^_^

    I made latkes once. Tried sour cream and applesauce with them. My hubby thought they were simply glorified hashbrowns! I liked ’em though.

    Sorry, I hit “submit comment” before I was done. Is there any significance behind the latkes and the sufganiot? I hope you have a very Happy Hanukkah!

  3. Lol! Latkes can be awesome depending on the recipe.

    The meaning behind it, to my knowledge, is that it’a oily food. (oil foods = remind of us oil)
