We always go to church on Christmas Eve for the candlelight service. Monday, Sweetie (9) and I had this conversation:
- Can we go to Hanukkah?
- Hanukkah isn't a place, it's a holiday. Are you saying you want to celebrate Hanukkah? <all ready to explain about the menorah>
- I wanna go to church.
- We don't celebrate Hannukah at church, that would be at a synagogue. <all ready to explain what a synagogue is>
- No, the candles at church.
- <finally getting it> You mean you want to go to the candlelight service on Christmas eve?
She must have learned about Hanukkah at school, and connected the candles in the menorah with the candles on Christmas Eve.
