Happy hanukkah, everybody! My roomies and I hosted a hanukkah party on Sunday that was a smash hit! What’s great about Hanukkah, from a busy person’s perspective, is that it’s 8 nights long. So there’s a lot of leeway in terms of potential party dates. And the 3rd day is just as important as the other 7 days, so…come light the menorah. Let’s have a party. We’ll all dance the hora.
What started out as an innocent idea to have a few people over for latkes and wine, quickly turned into a large potluck party with multiple rounds of Drunken Dreidle (my brother came up with it: a drinking version of the classic spinning top game from every Jew’s childhood) and dozens of delicious jelly doughnuts!
A fun time was had by all — even the goys were into it. The latkes fried and the oil flowed. For a first time Hanukkah party-thrower, I’d say it was a success.
