Happy Chanuka!

It's here at last - Happy Chanuka! Even before my eldest daughter was born on the first night of Chanuka, I think that it always was my favorite holiday. I mean, how wrong can you go when fried potatoes are your flagship food? Mmm, mm.


Anyway, I found myself a spare minute, so I'd like to quickly share two wonderful holiday bloopers. First up, this absolutely unbelievable one, from my good friend Dena!




That can't be real - they must be taking the mickey out of us :) I've lived here for almost half my life, but some things still shock me. This, for example! Thanks so much, Dena!


And, sent in completely separately by her son Micha, here's another excellent holiday specimen:




Erm... it may be extraordinarily priced, but yeah, I think I'll pass on that dreidel.
Thanks, Micha!


Fantastic finds, both! Have a wonderful, wonderful Chanuka, everyone! 


Oh, and of course I'll post this to Lesley's weekly meme, Signs, Signs. See you there!

LOL! I realize that spinning a draidel can be hard, but I can't say that I've ever heard of anyone breaking a sweat while doing so... :-)

Not sure what Mick Holders are! Interesting signs because for those not in Israel, they are extremely puzzling!

Happy Chanukah, Toby!

Thanks, everyone!
Gemma - those are supposed to be wick holders, for the Menorahs :)

I think I'll pass on that dreidel, too!
I was confused at first, but Balashon's comment lead me in the right direction!

Happy Chanukah to you

(p.s. glad you found my 'real' blog!)
