By some splendid coincidence, this year the Jewish festival of Chanukah falls pretty much the same time as Christmas, so lots of folks get to celebrate at the same time.
Chanukah is an eight day, wintertime festival of lights. There’s lots of fried food eaten traditionally and every night candles are lit, starting with one and building until all eight are lit, a special prayer is said and song sung to accompany the candle lighting. There’s lots of fun and games and spinning top games using something called a spinning dreidel. Basically it is big fun and a happy holiday. Fancy coloring in your own dreidel? It just so happens we have a nifty image with thanks to Surfnetkids that can be downloaded for an ace colouring-in activity https://www.surfnetkids.com/coloring/images/hanukkah-dreidel-2.pdf
If you’d like to celebrate here in London check out the JW3 website for festive activities for all the family.
