It's not every day that we make yeast doughnuts, but tonight's the night! We're remembering the ancient story of the Maccabees, that tale that has been removed from most bibles: but our family makes it a point to read this story over the next week (plus one) and we also make lots of fried food. :-)
We do not observe a traditional Hanukkah, but we do enjoy some traditions. We play board games and listen to upbeat music - sort of like a long party with fried food!
But the most important part of this time is DEDICATION, that we rededicate our hearts and cleanse our bodies of former sins and devote ourselves to the Word of God. Especially the story of the Maccabees, a time of persecution for the people of God and yet they overcame. May we overcome the trials in our lives by remaining in the LIGHT of the Word of God. That is the Light of the World Messiah Yeshua.
It is a special night for us and it continues for multiple days and nights.

Teach Your Children Liberty from Sin
We encourage parents to teach their children principles of Godliness, beginning with the Word and an understanding who God is and what His Son has done to form a relationship with us.
No one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, his workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
Teach Your children Liberty from Tyranny
Second to this is the principle of self-determination and freedom, lest we loose the ability to teach our children the first principle in future generations.
Our children read the Tuttle Twin books, specifically to learn libertarian principles, which most people learn later in life. These books are useful for our family, and yours, to teach children concepts that seem complicated, but are made simple in these books. I am an affiliate for Libertas Publishing, your purchase will help our family grow financially.
