Festival of Lights! Time for Hanukkah ✡

Happy almost Hanukkah! This year I wanted to make our home especially bright and cheerful. Hanukkah is a special holiday we celebrate to remember the struggle and challenges the Jewish people faced during the Maccabean Revolt, and how they came out stronger with their love and faith in G-d ♥ The miracle of Hanukkah is a reminder that no matter the difficulties we might come up against, there is light ahead of us!

I have acquired many of my decorations over the last few years; however, Target had wonderful options this year. A close friend of mine and myself also made the center piece for my table as a craft project!

Making the center piece garland for our table was so much fun and makes it sentimental ♥ The white frosted and champagne pinecone garlands org. $19.99 are on sale for $9.99, the navy Amaranthus stems org. $9.99 are on sale for $4.99, and the Star of David ornaments org. $11.99 are on sale for $5.99 all from Michael’s craft store.

I love checking the countdown to Hanukkah each morning while I make a cup of coffee ♥ It is fun idea for children too, they can count down the days to delicious foods and bright Hanukkah nights!

Traditionally for Hanukkah we make something with an oil each night to symbolize the oil that miraculously burned for eight nights. Latkes are one of my favorite dishes to make for Hanukkah, it is a scrumptious food that you can make with friends and family. We make traditional potato latkes, but you can make various kinds; such as sweet potato, zucchini, carrot, butternut squash, be creative!
