Happy Hannukah! This year, since Harris has been showing such an awesome interest in Shabbat on Friday nights, I felt that he would probably really enjoy celebrating Hannukah too. Last year, with Harris being barely 1 and all, we didn't make a big deal out of Hannukah. In fact, I can't even remember if we lit our menorah or not... Anyways, this year, along with lighting our menorahs and saying the blessings, I wanted to make sure that we added in the small gifts portion of Hannukah into our celebration. I know how commercial the Holidays can be, and every day I grow further and further away from desiring merchandise that has been mass produced. This Hannukah, I decided to try and make as many gifts as I could, or buy handmade items Mindi and I are not really exchanging gifts, so I was able to focus on Harris! I have to admit, I do have 2 mass produced items in my list, but I am very proud of the other things that I DID make!
Happy Hannukah! Night #1
