Hanukkah

DSC04047

While most of you have been celebrating Christmas, I've been celebrating Hanukkah this last week. Up until now I had never really celebrated it, so this time it was lovely to celebrate it with all the things it includes, such as lighting the candles, songs, and delicious food like sufganiot (like berliner doughnuts) and latkes (potato pancakes).

Last night was the last day of Hanukkah, and we made latkes.

You're entirely welcome. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog :)
It's always sad when visits have to come to an end, but enjoy the rest of your time in Israel regardless (which I'm sure you will!).

Great pictures from your Hanukkah celebration :)

Ohh such lovely candels!! *.* and the food looks yummy :P
About my eye make up, it's not hard to do it, just (firstly) put black shadow on your eyelid, then grey shadow above the black one, some of glittery white shadow above the grey one haha, and then I pass the eyeliner four or five times; I insist to make a thick line. Try it if you want to! ;)
Enjoy the two last days of this year!
Byee

Hmmm... don't get me wrong, but why is there a blue child's head on one of the potato pabcakes? Is that some kind of a jewish joke? :)
