Everyone – including Jews – are celabrating #Hanukkah! Hannaka is just like Christmas, but without as much Santa. Don Jr gave me some of his homemade Dreidel Soup with Bacon! Very Crunchy, but good! …#HappyHanukkah #MondayMorning #MondayMotivation

Hanukkah and the tradition of lighting the menorah was started over two thousand years ago and Jews worldwide still celebrate it today. Although a lot of people don’t celebrate Hanukkah, we can still wish Jews a happy holiday. So like President Trump said: “Happy Hanukkah.”
