Happy Hanukkah!

Today is the first day of Hannukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, referring to the lights kindled on each of the holiday's eight nights. We eat foods fried in olive oil to commemorate the ancient miracle that occurred in the second century BCE. A jug of olive oil, which held enough oil to last for one day, burned for eight when the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated.

Please come visit Taste With The Eyes for the commemorative latkes recipe.
Happy Hanukkah!
