Tonight we lit the 8th candle.
And ate latkes and soofganiot.
Happy last day of Chanuka!

Chanuka is definitely not a time for dieting! I'm happy that Chanuka ended on a festive (and delicious!) note. It has been a difficult week for Israel.

That's a simple, lovely and unusual menorah! I hope you could enjoy the Hanukah holiday in spite of the terrible fires!

And now I missed it all. Sorry. Too busy ranting and being ashamed. I love this shot Dina. It's cosy and beautiful and serene.

In one of my favourite caf├ęs @Starbucks, they always have an extravagant christmas decoration and gift display.It is very commercial but it is pretty.

At the top of the shelf thay had a candalabra of blue candles for chanuka I noticed today.It was so pretty.

Dina said...

Sara, my whole house smells of hot oil. Glad we don't do that frying every day.

Andrea, be well, be careful.
The fire is over; now Israel starts learning the lessons from it. I was far from it and was not affected physically, only emotionally.

Cloudia! You stay afloat! Literally.

Leif, the chanukiah was a gift from my daughter. Very unique. Made in Sde Boker, Ben-Gurion's old kibbutz.

Kay, I wish you were here to share latkes and jelly donuts.

Gunn, thank you!

Ciel, but you are not too late. Today, Thursday, is the last day of Chanuka. (A Jewish day goes from sunset to sunset.)
I wonder how artistic you would decorate for this holiday.
Sorry about your snow problems.
Nice to see you ranting for a change.

Crederae, shalom! It would be fun to see a chanukiah at Starbuck's.

Kate said...

Love the colour arrangement of the candles. I hope that you and yours had a fine hanukah despite the terrible fires.

Happy (belated) Chanuka, Dinah - I love latkes:)
