Quick Quote #17



To pass the time, Ryan was asking the kids what Christmas traditions they'd like to incorporate this year. Gabe had a great idea. He said he'd "always wanted to try Hanukkah." L'Chaim!


He's pictured here, last Christmas...not in a yarmulkah. Sorry.

Trust me Gabe, I tried Hanukkah...Christmas is WAY better!

Buy the kid a menorah and yarmulke. And make a few potato latke's with apple sauce on the side. Make sure to tell him the Macabee story, and voila, it's his fondest Christmas wish! Unfortunately all his presents will have to go back...

That is so funny. My kids don't even know what hanukkah is. I should teach them.

I was laughing so hard the first time I read this! Love it!

He is so cute. Where do kids come up with this stuff?? It reminds of that Adam Sandler Hanukkah song. That song is SOOO funny!

I've been educated in reading this post. I was doing a crossword puzzle last night and the clue was yarmulke. Not being at all familiar with hebrew or Judaism, I had no clue what on earth the word was. I read it phonetically...yar-mul-key. HAHA! I'm laughing right now just thinking about it. What a dork! Anyway...thanks for the education.

sheesh!

And for the record...my husband didn't know either.

And the year after you guys could try out Kawanza (sp?).

We celebrated a mixture of Hanukkah and Christmas tonight at our cub scouts den meeting. And low and behold, of the 10 boys in attendance, the only boy that had ever eaten latkes was my son. Last week we celebrated Kwanzaa and attempted to discuss Rohatsu . . . but the boys got way too distracted with my husband's laughing Buddha he got while in India.

That's hilarious. I'm not really educated on how to celebrate Hanukkah, but it sounds like it might be fun.
