Birthday Candles, Birthday Angels

Every so often my birthday falls during Chanukah. When it happens, I get a whole lot of birthday candles! This year, it happens to be the 8th night, so it's quite a display.

So, this year, in honor of Chanukah and my birthday, I will give away one Birthday Party to a lucky commenter on this post!


The catch: it's not for you.

It's for a kid in Israel who can't afford a birthday party, through an organization called Birthday Angels.

Check out their video:


It's a big bang-up ending to my 2 weeks of Chanukah fun and giveaways.
AND....If I get more than 32 comments on this post, I'll give 2 Birthday Parties!

So tell your friends, tweet it up, and let's celebrate!
Leave your comment....



P.S. Stay tuned for all the winners of the Tzedakah giveaways....

Happy Birthday, Phyllis! My birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving which is fun because my grandma tends to remember my birthday then. :)

Happy Birthday! Your getting all those candles reminds me of how yesterday was the longest bentching of the year (Shabbat, RH and Chanukah) and 3 sifrei Torah. How wonderful to have so many candles as a celebration.

Happy Birthday!
And yes, I've heard of Birthday Angels. My childrens' school participated in a fund-raiser for the organization. There was an art auction and a concert put on by the school choir. A great cause.
