The Holiday of Miracles, Lights and Jelly Doughnuts
Hanukkah! The Jewish most famous holiday is here again. This holiday, featured by symbols like the Hanukkah lamp (in English many would call in Menorrah), Jelly Doughnuts, candles, spinning tops and potato pancakes.
In Israel, the holiday is known for his non-stop celebrations. Unlike other Jewish holidays in Israel, Hanukkah is a holiday for everybody, for all the family members.
Children goes to the 'Festigals', which are mainly a huge performances, taking place in Israel's biggest theatres, and performed by Israel's most famous and loved celebrities, mainly kids' superstars.
Teenagers spend their eight-days holiday celebrating in night clubs and many other nighlife options. Adults prefer spending time with their family, watch movies and go to the theatre.
We all share one main costum, eating jelly doughnuts, a lot of jelly doughnuts. Many would call Hanukkah 'a holiday of gaining weight'. The holiday's food are all full of calories, but, it is celebrated only once a year.
