Aloha Friday: Holiday Foods
It’s sometimes been said that the Jewish holidays revolve around food (or the lack thereof). We eat apples and honey on Rosh Hashana, fast on Yom Kippur and don’t eat bread on Passover. Chanukah is no different. Since, on Chanukah we celebrate one day’s worth of oil lasting eight days, the traditional foods involve items fried in oil. Sure, they might not be the healthiest foods for you, but potato latkes and jelly donuts are quite delicious. We even have a sort of Christmas day food tradition. Since they are the only places open, we go to a Chinese restaurant.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: What are your family’s food traditions for this holiday season?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the McLinky there if you are participating.
