Better late than never. We went on a VERY last minute trip to Chile and came back home half way through the holiday. While I was way less diligent this year, since it was Little Boy’s second Hanukkah, we managed one candle lighting while away, and three more when we came back. 50% for the win!
The nice thing was that we could talk a little bit about the holiday traditions with the kiddo (through this book), and then when we lit the candles and played dreidel he had some idea of what was going on.
Per his love of cooking, Little Boy loved helping us make latkes and sufganiyot (donuts)! I can’t wait for next year when we can hopefully incorporate the more intricate story, crafting etc. (And for the sake of fairness we will need to be diligent about candle lighting again, because God willing it will be Baby Brother’s first Hanukkah!)
Happy Hannukah 2012!
