Preparing for Rosh Hashana

In Israel they don’t think of Hanukah as a “huge” holiday.  I think it is because it is so close to Christmas we have made it into a gift giving holiday.  The gifts in Israel are given out at Rosh Hashanah.  I know when I was there the malls were loaded with carts selling gifts, and people had packages galore in their arms.  Just a little bit of information on gift-giving!

On a side note, last night I decided to bake (a very rare thing for me) at 10pm.  I made a honey cake in bread pans.  If it is good, I will share the recipe!  I used a book given to me from my sister-in-law from Israel, so the recipes are a little bit different than our American cookbooks.  Keep you posted.
