Not here, Yule and Christmas.

But, I do have an honest question?  What do you do for 8 days?  I know you light a candle in the mennorah (sp) each night, right?  Is there special activities for each day, or is it random?  Are there songs you sing or prayers or chants....games?  Im very curious because I don't believe I have met anyone that celebrates Hanukkah.  (wow-Im deprived, huh?)

Not really,  but my best friend is Jewish, so we celibrate Chrismaka or Hannamas  as we like to call it with her and her husband.

Nope. When I met my husband, he had just recently converted to Judaism. Eventually, I kind of loosely converted (stopped eating pork, started going to Shabbat, started celebrating Jewish holidays). But, I still celebrate Christmas too. I just couldn't give that up! I'm still learning a lot about the Jewish holidays too. It's funny, when people learn that I celebrate Hanukkah, they start asking lots of questions about the religion, and I feel awkward cause I don't know a lot of the answers.
