cheery chanukah!

this past weekend f & I joined a few friends and attended a 'holiday hootenanny' sponsored by heights arts and led by a musical trio, brothers david & noah budin and julia mell. definitely a fun time. most of the songs were familiar, but there was one song that was new to me and which I immediately fell in love with. the program has it listed as "I am a latke" by debbie friedman, the song has a wonderfully infectious beat and it's about one of my favorite foods. bet you didn't know that when I was twelve I was actually involved in a latke eating contest (now there's a story!)

anyhow, with the miracle of youtube I found a couple versions of the latke song - here's my favorite:

happy hanukkah ~ cheery chanukah!

I didn't even know what a latke was until just now! I always learn something or other when I visit your blog. Thanks.
