Lynn B. Friedman - Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty: Hanukkah -- Chanukah -- Festival of Lights -- 2018

Hanukkah -- Chanukah -- Festival of Lights -- 2018

Hanukkah --

Chanukah --

Festival of Lights -- 2018


Whatever your spelling for the holiday -- Chanukah is 
a celebration of religious freedom and rededication to principles.


Traditionally, the "Menorah" sits in a front window, emphasizing the importance of religious freedom to everyone who passes by the home.


Jewish holidays begin at Sunset -- but actually 20 plus minutes before so one may enjoy every minute! So in the photo above, you can see the grandchildren of several ages lighting the candles JUST BEFORE dark.


Traditional foods include potato pancakes and jelly donuts. Recipe links.


Here's the glowing light reflected in the windows after dark.

This is my favorite image -- love the reflected light!


Happiness and Health and Safety to you and your family and friends.

Sincerely, Lynn

Happy Hanukkah to you and yours, Lynn. This was a lovely explanation of the holiday traditions for those who are not familiar with it.

Lynn B. Friedman - I am late in wishing you and your family Happy Chanukak but I am glad I finally got here. You see, my grandmother always made donuts like the recipe you mentioned with a link for how to make both donuts and pancakes. She also made pancakes too!

Your grandchildren are beautiful. Your photographs depict family tradition, love, and values. These are cherished memories. I wish you all the best as we transition into 2019.
