I’m the first to admit that I am pretty uninformed on the Jewish holiday. I was talking with my friend, AoD, today and she filled me in on the essentials. She also promised me that she and Paulie would take time to celebrate by getting some potato pancakes…still waiting on word that it was so. (Just got word. They had broccoli fritters which still count because they are fried goodies. Well done Steinman’s.)
Growing up as a Lutheran PK in Minneapolis suburbs near St. Louis Park meant that during this time of year, we got to see their ginormous Menorah light up night after night. It also meant I had no clue what it all meant. But now I do.
So Happy Hanukah to those who celebrate.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
