The Holiday Spirit Begins With Family

Hanukkah is an important time to love and honor family. It was so amazing the light lasted so long. I really enjoy my friends who celebrate Hanukkah. They share not just interesting recipes, but also great family traditions and family time experiences. This truly warms my soul.

So I wanted to share something of my own with my Jewish friends.

We would love to hear about how your family celebrates Hanukkah. Tell us in the comments about your Family Hanukkah Celebrations.

What is Hanukkah?

Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. (source Hebcal)

My family wanted to come up with something for their Jewish friends so we came up with a Festival Of Lights printable activities pack. 

We are also printing it out and the boys will be sharing what they learned and came up with here.

My family is not Jewish but we have lots of great friends that are. I like my children to know about various religions and cultures. I want them to not be ignorant when they become adults and go out there into the real world. 

  • Our Family Does Not Believe In Being Closed Minded

They are encouraged to freely learn and have very open and detailed conversations with us. Religion and belief is no different for us. It isn’t our jobs as parents to dictate, push or coerce our children into believing or following something that we do. They are absolutely free without judgement to follow their own paths. 

They wanted to learn about what the Menorah is and what it symbolizes. We once lived in a community where the elementary school talked lots about all the Jewish holidays, so they would at times bring home different arts and crafts about The Festival Of Lights. So I think it is important for the kids to learn about other holidays, not just ones we celebrate.
