Happy Hanukkah!

Whether your family celebrates or your friends do, we hope the next 8 days are full of delicious food, festive fun, and special memories. Not familiar with the Jewish holiday? Here are some fun Hanukkah facts

Hanukkah FACTS & TRADITIONS

  • Traditional Hanukkah foods are fried in oil. Potato pancakes (known as latkes) and jam-filled donuts (sufganiyot) are particularly popular in many Jewish households. 
  • Other Hanukkah customs include playing with four-sided spinning tops called dreidels. Learn how to play here.
  • It is a tradition to light a nine-branched menorah to commemorate the miracle that a one-day supply of oil lasted for eight days. Make sure you have 8 candles for each night of Hanukkah!
  • Continue a Hanukkah tradition and purchase some chocolate coins, or gelt. The Yiddish word “gelt” means “money" in English. 
  • Families often will exchange gifts throughout Hanukkah. Not sure what to get? Check out these ideas.
