our first Hanukka starts tomorrow night :)

So I am making a list of links to use until a book I ordered gets here.

Hanukkah Blessings

We ordered  "Light in the Darkness Hanukkah and the Disciples of Yeshua" a First Fruits of Zion Anthology from (Estimated delivery date of Dec 4-30! UGH!)  Picked up the candles yesterday at Hallmark Cards. Bought some Kosher chocolate coins win playing Dreilel. Yesterday I started our book collection for the children with 3 Hanukkah children illustrated books.

This is our first year to not "do" Christmas. We gave up Santa a few years ago but kept up with the tree trimming, gifts, carols, and going all Chevy Chase with outside lighting. We are not trying to "become Jews" (though I *am* Jewish by heritage... 2nd generation American after my father's family fled the Nazis in Sweden) We are just trying to lose the "traditions of man" and follow the traditions of God by giving up our pagan ways. Jesus celebrated Hanukkah so we thought it might be nice to add it to our traditions.
