Latkes, Gelt and Eight Night of Presents!

For the month of  December the Owlets have been learning about People and Traditions Around the World. This week they learnt about the Jewish holiday Hanukkah.

During Hanukkah or the Festival of Lights, candles are lit at sundown for eight nights in a row. People eat latkes, exchange gifts, and play dreidel games.

The Owlets enjoyed delicious latkes and applesauce made by one of the parents.
