My friend Deborah invited people over to celebrate the sixth night of Hanukkah. As it has been before, it was a lovely and relaxing evening that left me wanting to celebrate Hanukkah too. Luckily for me, my Unitarian faith has no problem incorporating other religious traditions into my spiritual practice. Deborah mentioned that she bought her menorah at the Goodwill, so I resolved to keep my eyes open for one too. Instead, I scored at New Season’s 75% off holiday merchandise sale.

I’m not sure yet what my 2012 Hanukkah celebration (beginning the evening of December 8) will look like, but I’ve got the main piece of equipment and I can’t wait.

  1. Hee hee! I am amused by this post. When I taught ESL to 2nd graders I did a winter holidays unit and learned so much about Hanukkah that I never knew. It was the 2nd grade non-English speaking version of the holiday, but since I never knew anyone that celebrated it was great fun to learn. I recommend to you the picture book Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins to go with your celebration.
