I missed the Sinterklaas celebration in the Netherlands on the sixth of December, and I plan on sleeping through the by-now painfully p.c. Santa Lucia’s Day in Sweden. But I did remember Chanukah this time – with thanks to Israel Matzav for posting the link:
I’m a fan of a capella music, no doubt due to my own years of singing Gregorian chant (note: when you can’t sing, Sister Marie Therese puts you in the alto section where your noises are more easily drowned out).
I’m equally a fan of latkes. Once I figured out how to keep the shreds of potato from turning brown, I was in like Flynn. Or perhaps “in like Hammerstein” would be more apropos? At any rate, latkes it shall be tonight. Hold the applesauce.
