Hanukkah begins tomorrow night. Who wouldn’t love a celebration that lasts eight days and involves lighting pretty candles, exchanging gifts, playing games that involve chocolate coins and eating foods that have been fried in oil?  Hanukkah features foods fried in oil in remembrance of the oil that miraculously burned for 8 days back in the day.…

Chanukkah is coming, and kids are looking forward to stuffing their faces with latkes – potato pancakes.
