Happy Hanukkah to all

We here in But Why Mommy land celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. We want to teach Bunny about both tradtions, however, this year FAIL.

You see last year when I was putting away the decorations, I dropped the menorah and it broke. Rather than finding one during the post-holiday sales, I figured I would get one this year. Which of course I didn't remember until I got it out last week. Now I can't find one to save my life. I've looked in several stores and asked the manager if they have menorahs. They don't.

I could try to jerry rig it with duct tape and glue but I don't think that would be very safe. What with the lit candles and all. That is if I could find the candles that go with the menorah. You see if they don't sell menorahs, they probably aren't going to have candles.

So for all of you celebrating this year, Happy Hanukkah. We are with you in spirit.

Happy Hannukah, Renee. Here's a video to make up for the menorah (don't show it to Bunny)...

I had this problem last year! It was the candles, no Hanukkah candles anywhere. I used birthday candles and there is a huge difference. They burn forever! Real Hanukkah candles burn down very quickly.

Happy Hanukkah! It'll be there next year for you.

Lost opportunity. You might have lit only one candle and seen - in the absence of a menorah - whether it would have burned for 8 days.
