Sorry I haven't answered this before - I'm having a rough time of things here at home these days...
To answer Tamara's question... now that the kids are grown, we don't do a whole lot of celebrating. We do make sure to light the candles on the menorah each of the 8 nights, reciting the prayer while we do so. Then we might exchange gifts, but lately we've not really been doing that. Amy will get a few small gifts this year, and Brian will get some $ deposited into his account since he lives too far to visit for the holiday. Don and I are not exchanging any gifts this year due to the expenses of the pond.
Last year, we invited some friends over, as well as my parents, and Don made latkes (potato
pancakes) while I made matzoh ball soup for Charlie who is a vegetarian and requested it. He brought a gorgeous and delicious salad, and I think I also had some meat or chicken - can't remember!
Here is a link to my post from last year - Cindy was kind enough to find it for me! Our Chanukah 2006
I haven't put out any decorations this year because the weather has been too crummy - very very cold, with lots of rain and bits of snow. It's ok though... most of the other people on our street celebrat Christmas and they don't decorate at all for the most part.
