Celebrate Chanukah with a Party
We haven’t always lived near family and we still don’t have many Chanukah parties to go to. Growing up we had no family near us and even now I only have 1 Chanukah party to go to. While I have some friends who are busy every night with different parties from different parts of their family and social circle- if I want a party I have to make it myself.
There is no reason why you can’t have a Chanukah party with just yourself. If you have kids, they will love it! You can also invite some friends for a friend Chanukah party! Chanukah parties are not just for large, extended families. My mother used to dedicate one night of Chanukah for our “Chanukah Party” which was just us but it was still tons of fun!
