Happy Chanukkah* Brooklyn! Wednesday, December 12 is the fourth day and the fifth night of Chanukkah. So, gamble away your chocolate gelt over a crazy game of dreidl, catch a glimpse of the bike-drawn menorah in Williamsburg, Oattend any number of menorah lightings around town, and definitely overdo it on the latkes – Chanukkah comes but 8 days a year!
One more thing: call your Bubby and thank her for the real Chanukkah gelt.
* And yes, this is MY preferred spelling of the festival of lights. Google it any way you like because as far as I can tell, no one has come to an agreement on the spelling – except maybe in Hebrew (chet, nun, kaf, hey).
