Hanukkah and hiking

First Hanukkah candles 

We lit the first Hanukkah candle yesterday, and of course, couldn’t resist the temptation to make something fried (I always declare that I won’t, and the kids always talk me into it).

Then today we went for a little hike in the area where we live. The weather was beautiful, and the cyclamens and crocuses are beginning to poke out!

Wishing a happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends, and an enjoyable holiday season to the rest of ya’ll!

  1. I’m attempting a Hanukah feast tonight. We are not Jewish, but I see the beauty in Jewish festivals and they dovetail so well with our own Christian beliefs. I too am waiting for Zion. And the temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem. Love your blog 🙂
