Chanukah Countdown Party!!!
One week from tonight we light the first Chanukah candle.
While Chanukah is a minor Jewish holiday, it does have wonderful messages and an opportunity, as all our holidays, to get together with family and celebrate the beauty and joy in our religion!
I'm so excited to begin a week of Chanukah Countdown on both of my blogs.

Seriously, though, the reason we can't spell it in English is because it's a transliteration of a Hebrew word that looks like this:
...so the bottom line is: anyway you spell it, it's still the same holiday!
Stay tuned this week for Chanukah Countdown posts culminating sometime this week in a big Chanukah giveaway! (Because what is a good Chanukah Party without gifts!?)
