Posting will be light for the next 8 days.

I’ll let the geniuses in the crowd figure out why. 🙂

Unless I am inspired. Or bored. Or inebriated…

Btw, I made that hanukkiah myself out of stuff from Walmart for just about $10… It’s not always expensive to be cool.

    How about inspired, bored AND inebriated?

    I like it. But with candles that big it might be a while before they burn down…

  • heidi

    Well, technically, you are only “required” traditionally to let them burn for 30 minutes. That’s the minimum. And since they aren’t shabbos candles, you can blow them out without it being considered “work”. Also, at the end of the Hanukkah celebration, you have 9 candles for the bathroom, bedroom, living room, etc.

    No waste. Frugal. Ahh, my kind of celebration!

  • Erik

    But the traditional candles are soooo beautiful (well, mine are anyways) and they burn so completely there isnt anything but the tiniest bit of wick left. Truly a marvel to me! I love to watch them.

    But I havent even lit mine yet! I’m bad. lol, now that I am thinking of it I am not even sure where the hanukiah is! or the candles! Triply bad.

  • Erik

    hmm. okay, found the hanukiah. Location of candles? Anyones guess.

  • CrazyJo

    We have about four hanukkiahs here, and come the 8th night we’ll really have a fire hazard!

    I love the one you made, I think it’s beautiful. I may have to do one myself some day.

    It was pretty easy.

    9 votives from the store (.39 ea.)

    1 glass votive (upside down) (.99)

    bunch of glass sparkly rocks I had around(free, you could use anything that piles and looks pretty. I originally got the rocks from the dollar store)2.00

    1 long silver baguette tray from Walmart (7.00

    $12.00 if I’d had to buy the rocks.
