Well, tonight starts the eight nights of Chanukah. For those of you unfamiliar, this is the holiday that commemorates the Jewish Maccabees’ defeat over Antiochus, and afterwards, the miracle of the lamp oil lasting for eight days. Hence the eight day celebration.
Anyway, it’s fun. Plenty of twinkle lights and blue tinsel up everywhere. Squink and I have a really pretty multicolored string in our room. 🙂
So, for the week, I’ll be off of here celebrating with family, rubbing my sore typing hand and recovering from NaNoWriMo. And preparing for a choir/band concert, too, actually. But that’s just the last night. 😉
I’ll take plenty of fun menorah pictures and hopefully get some good instruction pics for our donut recipe (!).
As last time, I’ll be leaving a poll for what you guys want to see first when I get back.
Here it is, please vote!
Some funny pictures:
And enjoy some Chanukah favorites from our house! 😀
Both those are Maccabeats parodies. Here’s one from our most played Hannukah disc.
And some cool videos on the book of Maccabees while we’re at it:
Chanukah: Book of the Maccabees Uncovered (this is seriously cool, you guys really should check it out. Plus, it’s animated. 😉 )
Feel free to browse old posts on my blog and comment. I’ll be a bit responding, but I’d love to come back to a full notification center. XP
Well, I’ll miss you guys, and I’ll be back soon!
Thanks for being patient. ❤
Happy Chanukah, everyone! 😀
