"We're halfway through Hanukkah, our house smells like hot oil, and the girls have perfected their dreidel techniques. This year, their fingers are big enough to spin our smallest dreidels on their own, they can quickly calculate how to take half of an odd-numbered kitty, and they're confident enough to light the candles on their own. I love the constants of Hanukkah, the light, the latkes, and the gambling for chocolate and pennies, and I love how these traditions put the growth of my children and their ever-deepening understanding of the world into perspective."
