Tonight we will light the final candle on the Hannukah menorahs and enjoy the collective light of their 27 candles (8 plus a shamash, or helper candle, for each of three menorahs) before packing them away for another year.

It's been a great holiday despite the rain and occasionally intervening work crises (both mine and my husband's - so much for early nights). There were latkes, and then more latkes, and then still more latkes (ours, friends' and the neighbors'),
and Hannukah parties,.
and jelly doughnuts, both edible and not.
and soccer tournaments (they won 11-4)
