Tonight is the fourth night of Hanukkah! As I promised in my last post, here are the photos I took with my cousin :) They're a couple of days late, but I don't think that decreases their adorable-ness one bit.
My family celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas, because my father comes from a Jewish family and my mother from a Christian one. While our family isn't particularly religious at all, we love both of the holidays and I feel really lucky to have been raised with two holidays that bring light to the wintertime.
The best part of the winter holidays, I think, is how we mix them together in my house. We have fairy lights all over the interior of the house (we're not much for outside decorating) - they're wound around the Christmas tree, the staircase bannister, the several menorahs we have, and pretty much anywhere else they'll stay. Tonight we're having a small Hanukkah party, complete with matzoh ball soup, latkes, and holiday crackers! Haha - we're very untraditional, as you can see, but our own wacky traditions have always worked for us :)
Mmmm - I can smell the latkes downstairs.... positively mouthwatering!
Happy Hanukkah! And also happy belated Solstice, and happy early Christmas, Kwanza, New Year, and the like, if I don't get around to another post before/on such holidays. I'll try!
