The Forty-Second Year

Hanukkah Yule -- Winter's Gate

December 1, 2007 (AS XLII)

North Star Council on Aging,
Fairbanks, AK

From The Page (November, 2007):

Oh Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah's, let's light the menorah! That's right. This year our Yule celebration will honor the ancient Festival of Lights. So put away the reds and greens and pull out your blues and whites. Bring your menorahs. Or candles and lanterns. And bring your inner child. Activities include (but not limited to) a non-violent tournament for a peaceful yule - a Dredel Tournament; dancing; a dredel pinata; decorating the Hanukkah bush; feasting and general merry making. And of coxirse, we will have our traditional, cutthroat, gift exchange! (just remember, no candles, candle holders, or heavily scented items). Feast is potluck, so bring a dish to share, that feeds 8-10 people. And no pork please! There is no kitchen, but there is a fridge and a microwave oven available. Contests: Table decorations - best table setting in themes of blue and white/ silver and Hanukkah. Baked goods - to be announced at a later date. Bardic - best retelling of the Hanukkah story. This does not have to be performed - it can be submitted written.
