We have had a busy time celebrating this Hanukkah week. We attended a potluck party at our synagogue on Friday evening, and last night we hosted our annual Hanukkah party. This is always fun. The adults indulge in good food and talk, and the large gang of kids have a great time sitting together to eat at the "children's table" and planning and putting on a play about the Hanukkah story. They take great liberties in their dramatic retelling, and the costuming was quite spectacular this year. The adults also engaged in some intense dreidel game playing after dinner. Much chocolate gelt was consumed.
