Before, I overload you with some Chanukah pictures, I want to say, that my Vegas post will be up soon! I need to document it because it was an amazing surprise that happened to my family- so stay tuned for this in the next couple of weeks!
As for us, we are a bicultural family. We celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas in our household. This time of year is very festive because we get to put up our Christmas tree, and our menorah, and just have some plain fun! Chanukah officially started this past Sunday and lasts 8 nights. Each night, we light another candle to our menorah and recite some Hebrew prayers. Each night, both Hayley and Zane each get to pick a gift from our Chanukah gift table. My husband ran out of Chanukah gift wrap so we had to use some Christmas paper, but who really cares- right! The kids and I also make latkes and play dreidel games! I am not sure how many of my readers are Jewish, but I thought I share the Youtube video that I saw perusing Youtube of the Maccabeats. This video is their Chanukah song and is ridiculously funny!
Once Chanukah ends, we will then transition in Christmas and phase 2 of the holiday season starts. It is a really fun time for our family and I wish for you all a very Happy Holiday Season!
Here are some fun pictures of our household and the decorations we put up this past weekend:
