Feliz Janucá - Happy Hanukkah

In Mexico, Hanukkah is written Januca and is mostly celebrated the same as every where else with some variations in the food and games. Food for the Festival of Lights is often "buñuelos" which are fried fritters drenched in sugar syrup and also balls of corn dough filled with marmalade. The game of "dreidel" is called "toma todo" and the dreidel top is a "pirinola". A Mexican "piñata" in the shape of the dreidel is also popular.
Happy Januca to our patrons starting their celebration tomorrow night!
