Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. For the first night I will tell you how to celebrate the holiday. 

If you're a boy you wear a yarmulke. If you're a girl, you don't have to wear a hat. Set the menorah on the table and as you're reading the ancient prayer from the torah you light the candles one by one. When you're done lighting them you can turn off the lights and watch the beautiful glow of the candles.

Hanukkah lasts eight days and each day you get a present. The kids usually open their presents after the menorah is lit.

After, you can eat some delicious potato latkes! Some people like to dip them in apple sauce or sour cream, but if anything, I prefer ketchup. For a dessert, or small treat, cut open a net full of Hanukkah gelt. Or as many people know it, chocolate money. 

Another Hanukkah tradition, which is especially popular with kids and families, is spinning the driedel. The highest you can get is gimel, and that is when you win all the money in the pot, which is usally the sweet chocolate gelt. mmm yummy! 

I love Hanukkah, it usally signifies the beginning of winter, which I always love, because that mean snow is coming...and so is Christmas! I just love winter! For all you people who celebrate Hannukah, have a wonderful holiday! :) 
Keep in mind:Hanukkah colors are blue, gold, and silver

Btw, I love this picture of the little girl looking at the menorah. It just symbolizes childhood and how children are fascinated by the glowing candles. This girl is so adorable with her blonde locks of curly hair. To me she kind of looks like Cara Gosselin, what do you think?
