Chanukah Musings and JPiX

chanukah 7 candles 7th night 1 for shamash
Tomorrow night, December 1, is the first night of Chanukah. Are you ready? Set up those chanukiot, bought those potatoes and oil, found last year’s dreidels? If you celebrate Chanukah and own a camera: take a photo, post it on your blog and submit it to JPiX.

An unknown number of 8 year old girls will be descending (ascending? proceeding to? invading? gracing?) our home on Sunday morning. A treasure hunt has been prepared by middle son, and I will be short order cook in charge of latke and sufganiyot (doughnuts) creation.

We are looking forward to Shabbat guests that we haven’t seen since we visited them in their home in Hashmonaim in 2008.

nice shot

Ilana-Davita says

I will try to take a photo, either tonight or when there are more lights. Can't wait to light the new chanukiah.
You are lucky to have such a helpful and creative son. Chag sameach!

Carver says

That's a beautiful shot. I hope you and your family have a happy chanukah.

felisol says

Great, before I ask, the answer is there. Such a beautiful Chanukah candle light stick.
I see your candles are running. That's my greatest problem when I light my seven armed Menorah. The lights will not burn properly, they will melt each other.

Leora says

"lights will not burn properly, they will melt each other." - an engineer needs to build these things! We have one where the oil lights below melt the shamash on a candle above - the poor candle bends and drips.
