Happy Hanukkah

December 11, 2009

Hanukkah, like many holidays, especially those in the colder months, prominently features food. Since Hanukkah begins this evening at sundown, folks are preparing in pretty much the same way today as they would have 50 years ago – with a trip to the grocery store.
