Haiku Friday - Hanukkah Traditions

Haiku Friday

So many to choose
they are all so beautiful
we love to collect

Menorahs each year
we purchase or are given
to us for our gifts

We spin the dreidel
the kids love to collect gelt
eat the chocolate ones

this year our latkes
will be made from the box mix
taste as good as scratch

we are counting down
till we light the first candle
and watch their beauty

There is this one menorah that I absolutely COVET. It's the one that looks like barbed wire wrapped up in a cone; have you seen it? It's pricey, though, and we have a perfectly fine menorah, so I can't justify it. Yet it speaks to me.

(and the Tour Manager would go apoplectic if he saw that you think latkes are as good from a box! He takes pride in his from-scratch latkes!)
