When I was younger, I used to go to my father’s house for Chanukah, and I also used to have parties for Chanukah at my father’s house. I might not be able to go this year because of COVID, and I didn’t get to go for a few years because of it. I really want to have Chanukah food on this Chanukah coming up and I also really want to go to Chanukah parties at my father’s house again.
I also remember that when I was younger, I went to my cousin’s house for Chanukah. I also remember that I went to another cousin’s house on Chanukah, and my cousin’s husband lit the candles. I remember one Chanukah my grandmother was at my father’s house for Chanukah. My father bought me and my peers some jelly doughnuts and some latkes from a bakery called Hermes.
I also remember that on Chanukah,I went to a program to make some Chanukah treats and I also remember that when I was younger, I went to a party with my cousins and other family members and I enjoyed the parties with them. I also remember that my mother used to wrap presents up and also give presents to my cousins and my family. We have jelly doughnuts at lunch at DANI for Chanukah. Sometimes, we get latkes for lunch. We do Chanukah trivia. We saw Anat last week. She helped us sing and dance. I sang with her. I’m looking forward to having latkes. Last year, I remember we lit the menorah. I want to do that again. We sing Ma O’Tzur. We sing the prayers too. My favourite part of Chanukah is the food. I love jelly doughnuts!
