Happy Hanukkah!

I love when Hanukkah and Christmas are so close together, don't you? Gideon and I are celebrating the holidays at my brother's house and, lucky us, they celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas.


Since we only celebrate Christmas at home, I love that Gideon will learn about Hanukkah over the years. Tonight we'll light the first candles and my brother will recite the prayers in Hebrew. I know Gideon is way too young to know what's going on but maybe something will sink in :) I know I've learned a few things about Hanukkah including how much fun it can be for kids! They get a long vacation from school, their parents encourage you to eat doughnuts and chocolate coins, and there are a lot of fun things to do online!
