Tonight is the first night of Chanukah. Last year I blogged about the story of Chanukah and why we light candles. It is a real fun holiday. We get to play with a dreidel (a 4-sided spinning top) and sing about it. We also recieve Hanukkah gelt (money) which is in the form of carob coins for us pups. But my fave is when we get to eat latkes (fried potato pancakes). Total yum. And we get to do all this for eight nights!
