We try to stick to what is important to us and be open to our families at their homes.

Target and Crate and Barrel seem to get more and more decorations this year. Last year there was hardly anything and this year there were solidly three shelves. I believe World Market had a section of decor as well, because it’s hardly a holiday if deck the stars.

My husband is currently on a journey towards Judaic conversion. From the get-go I’ve supported him and have welcomed changes in our small family’s lifestyle. Though it hasn’t been completely accepted with open minds like we had hoped from extended family.

This is our second year celebrating Chanukah and I was very much looking forward to it. Forging our own little traditions, learning more about the history, and perfecting my own latke and sufganiyot recipes ;) It’s been a wonderful experience!

I love the tradition of lighting the candles of the menorah. I think it is so beautiful, and gets more beautiful as the 8 nights of Hanukkah progress. I often have a Hanukkah dinner with friends – this week we had three menorahs to light. To me both holidays are a chance to be grateful for family, friends and the bounty of all we enjoy on earth.

Reading all these comments reminds me of the time I asked my parents why Jesus was Jewish but we were Mormon. I also remember in a ward Christmas party years ago, all the primary kids got dreidles and learned how to play the game. You have inspired me to go research Jewish culture more. I believe that learning about others beliefs help us become more accepting and loving of all people.

It was nice to learn a bit about everything.
