The trouble with relocating every few years is there is always something or someone you love that you can't bring along. I'm missing my BFF Wendy, who is Jewish....not to mention the latkes and chocolate she's probably devouring right about now!
She taught me about Hanukkah and I shared St. Nick's Day with her. A tradition I'd never heard of until I married my Catholic husband-- which perhaps explains why my children celebrated St. Nicks day on December 10th!
Wishing Wendy and all my Jewish family, friends, and colleagues a Happy Hanukkah!
