I know that you guys have a while to wait for Santa Claus to come, and when he comes it will rain deer and I hope none of the deer get hurt. And I hope Santa brings you whatever you wish for. But right now it's Hanukkah. Dat's when we celebrate that there was only enough oil for one night for the lamp but it lasted 8 nights when our ancestors had to clean the temple.
And we celebrate this by setting fire to a perfectly good Jewish candleholder called a menorah for 8 nights.
Since oil is a big part of the holiday, we also get to eat potato latkes (fried pancakes) and jelly doughnuts! For reals!
My holiday wish is that everyone has a happy and healthy holiday and of course that all the kitties and doggies and people without a forever home get a forever home.
And fish. I want lots of fish. And chicken and turkeys and stakes and also I would "luv" some new fuzzy tennis balls. (Ha, ya see what I did there? Tennis joke!)
And to watch Christmas movies with Mom.
