One of my favorite holiday memories was, actually, celebrating New Year's during the pandemic.  Even though it was hard on everyone not being able to spend time with all of the family, I still tried to find a way to make it fun and enjoyable!  New Year's Day is also my mother-in-law's birthday and even though we couldn’t go out to celebrate, we put together a little dinner at home since we live right next to each other. We got takeout, decorated the house, and spent the night together. I love this memory because even though times were hard, we found a way to look at the bright side.

I remember the first time I was allowed to light the menorah candles. It was the 7th night of Hanukkah and my parents gave me chocolate coins as my present and said that I looked like I could handle using a match. I was eager but nervous because I didn’t want to mess up the order which candles to light.  Remarkably, I did it right and, afterward, I felt even more connected to the holiday and my traditions.

What are some of your favorite family traditions or holiday memories?
