The days after Thanksgiving are spent with most people finalizing their plans for Christmas. For those of us that are Jewish and celebrate Chanukah, we have a lot less time to prepare this year. This coming Wednesday, December 1, we will be lighting the first candle on our menorah.
This year we are minimizing our focus on presents that we give the kids and focusing more on family time. So excuse me, I must be off. We need to locate all of our Chanukah books, practice spinning our dreidels, dust off our menorah, and get the songs of Barenaked Ladies ready to play for the week ahead.
