The Tin Man's Heart Watch Day #36
(pipes up recorder)
♪ ♫♪ ♫ Holden Flynn is a quarter Jewish, not too shabby. ♪ ♫♪ ♫
Nicole is Jewish by way of her father's side of the family and over the last two years we've introduced Holden to the holiday traditions of both religions. This year Hanukkah started on Thanksgiving Eve and was overshadowed on this blog by the entire turkey we've been working ourselves through over the last 6 or so days. We promise, we didn't mean for that to happen. So...
With Holden in the hospital, there is the problem of lighting the Menorah as a family. For some reason candles are frown upon in the Pediatric Cardiology ICU. Something about flammable gases and massive 'splosions which can result in all sorts of paper heavy and lawyer friendly law suits.
Luckily Target had a safety Menorah to allow us to "light" the candles and celebrate the holiday, with class.
Inert wooden flames, to the rescue.
