My friend, Avital, who lives in Israel,sent me this beautiful photograph she took a couple years ago of a simple Menorah and I asked her to allow me to share it with everyone today. Thank you so much Avital.
One of the things I love most about this image is the reflections of the candle flames - to me it is almost as if they are extending back in time - as if they are a connection to previous generations. And check out her beautiful image of Hanukkah street light decorations in her city

My favorite feast on December 12th, the celebration of La Virgen de Guadalupe, is a big bowl of Green Chile Stew and a basket full of pipping hot Sopapillas. I am sharing my recipes for both.
We start with Sopapillas.

I love this cheerful little ornament that can be adapted for any one or all of them!
Santa Lucia Day, December 13th. Use red and white yarns to reflect the colors used in Scandinavian winter holiday decorations.

Advent calendar - December 6th - St. Nicholas Day!
We awoke to frozen fog!
When fog and freezing temperatures come together at the same time, everything is covered with a fine film of frozen water vapor.
And best of all - St. Nicholas had indeed visited while we were sleeping!
Happy St. Nicholas Day to all.
