Happy Hanuka to all who celebrate.
Last night was the first night of the holiday, and my family (parents, siblings, nephews, niece) celebrated in the Caribbean.
It is now 1:45 in the afternoon - but still the first day of Hanuka - as like all Jewish holidays, it runs from sunset to sunset. I spent a couple hours at a beach - it's a nice way to celebrate.
I don't expect to do much genealogy research over the next week - or much blogging - but spending time with the extended family often yields stories to preserve.
