Hanukkah began Sunday evening. I light the candles every night and say the prayer because this holiday gives me comfort and makes me calm. We also called our youngest grandson, Aaron, and sang him the dreidel song. He is three, and goes to Jewish school out in sunny California. He is such a happy child, and he always makes us smile and laugh.
During Hanukkah, you give your children what's called gelt. It can be small presents, coins or chocolate, things like that. Since we have no children living with us, I bought Montana a package of Three-Dog Bakery "Chocolate" Sandwich Cookies. I'm giving him one each night of Hanukkah, since he is now our child. Needless to say, he's crazy about them!
