the first candle

hanukkah money (in chocolate form)

Last night we lit the first Hanukkah candle, ate a lot of sufganiyot, and even more chocolate coins. When my brother and I were little, we used to call these chocolate coins "Hanukkah money". This morning I opened my bag and found some more coins in every corner. I have a feeling my dad hid them there. He used to do that when I was little. I am eating far too much sugar these days. I am also looking toward the new year with both nervousness and excitement. I have a feeling a lot is going to happen. I would love to hear how you're all spending this festive time ...
