It is Almost Time To Celebrate Chanukah

Dear Jews of the blogosphere,

This time of year it is impossible to surf the net without being caught up in and covered in tinsel and mistletoe. Every other post is a tale about Christmas past, present and future. There is nothing wrong with that and I don’t begrudge a post or ten for those who celebrate the day.

But I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t make an effort to reach out to my fellow MOTs to let you know that this year the blogosphere is going to be rocked by a special blogging event we’ll call #HanukkahHoopla. It is going to be a festival of blog posts about Chanukah. It was organized by my friend Renee and I am very happy to be a part of it.

Here is what you need to know:

Mama Doni’s 2011 Parents’ Choice Award-winning CD, Shabbat Shaboom
a Mama Doni poster
a Download card for free Mama Doni songs (1 Chanukah song and 1 Passover song)
a Bag of Streit’s chocolate Hanukkah gelt.


And now if you will excuse me I have to run buy more potatoes and a brisket. Ooh, my mouth is watering at the thought of it all.
