Are you familiar with any Hanukkah traditions?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 16, 2006
“Well I’m not Jewish, but I think I know some of them like playing dreidle, lighting the menorah and eating latke with sour cream or applesauce. I know that the gold chocolate coins are a popular gift for kids.”
“I’m really not that familiar with it. I know they light the candles and all of that, but other than that I don’t know much about it.”
“Dreidles, latkes, gelt and that lighting the menorah one day at a time represents the oil lasting eight days when it was only supposed to last one.”
“The dreidle game and lighting the menorah for eight days.”
