We lit the first candle of hanukkah during our winter getaway, and now that we are home, the celebration continues.
I always have so much fun decorating and wrapping gifts for the holiday.
I thought I would share some pictures, in case anyone is in need of some Hanukkah inspiration.
Hanukkah decor is actually really hard to find, and if it is available, a lot of times it is ugly and tacky. I have been collecting and making our Hanukkah decorations for the past 3 years, and still do not have more then one bin full.
I keep all of my decorating really simple. I also put out a few winter decorations here and there, which will stay out until Feb-March, or until I start getting the itch to decorate for Spring.
Traditionally the Hanukkah menorah is set in front of the window (which is not possible in our house with a curious little 11 month old)
So I set up the menorah in the living room on my refinished record player.
