Chanuka Windows

Here in Israel, we're deep into the Chanuka season. No wreaths and trees for us; we're surrounded by fried jelly doughnuts, fried potato pancakes, and of course, Menoras. As my husband pointed out earlier this week, Chanuka certainly does not seem to be a festival of light. With all of this oil-rich food, we're gaining weight in our sleep :)

Anyway, here's a festive shot of our kitchen window, tonight:

As always, feel free to click on the picture, to get a closer view. And do check out more window (and door) shots of the week, here

Happy Wednesday, everyone! And happy holidays!

I love seeing menorahs lit up, one candle at a time.

Happy Chanuka, Toby. I think Menorahs are a beautiful tradition - lighting them at this time to remember how the oil never ran out so long ago. I like the reflection of the flames in the window.

Beautiful! It takes me back to a year ago, when we were able to see this up close!

What a delight to see such a warm and welcoming Chanuka table. It's just about my first, I think. Thank you for sharing it.
