My First Hanukkah

Shalom. I never lived with a Jewish person before, so this was my first Hanukkah. This is what happened: First Mommy took the stone candelabra and put candles in it. Then she lit the candles and chanted a prayer over them in a funny language. Every night for eight nights she'll light another candle. Every night we'll get anther gift. I got treats last night,and tonight, a ball.
Tonight she fried up some potato pancakes. Then the kitchen and living room filled with smoke. The round box on the ceiling started to go eee-eee. I didn't like that at all. Mommy ran around putting on the air blower and the rotating monster thing. Then I ran into the bedroom because that metal thing may eat me.
When things calmed down we had dinner. Jewish people sure celebrate in a weird way.

Hee hee hee. All peoples cellybrate in weird ways, Raja.
We haf an Advent Wreath and light a new candle once a week.
But we don't get gifts or nuffin.
No potato pancakes, either.
If Beans was normal, they'd just go catch a nice, fresh mousie and cellybrate.
Who needs candle?
Love & Purrs,
