Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 51!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


Growing up in an interfaith home, my brothers and I experienced the joys, traditions, and celebrations of our ancestors on both sides of the family tree.  I've continued to share my mother's Chanukah traditions and my father's Christmas ones with my girls. Next to their gifts from Santa, I think the girls look forward to playing dreidel and eating my mom's latkes most of all!  

In the spirit of the season, I'm sharing a few vintage Chanukah  graphics.



And now, this week's features:

Hannukah "Let There Be Light" Calendar
from Yesterday on Tuesday

  1. Okay, so my rhubarb liqueur is not something you can just whip up as a last minute Christmas present - it took about four months. But it IS fantastic and I will make a much bigger batch next year! Cheers.

  2. Jenn, thanks for hosting. Have a happy holiday!

  3. Thanks for Hosting, and Happy Hanukkah!


  4. Happy Chanukah! My son and I celebrated the Jewish traditions when we went to the Birmingham Temple near Detroit, MI. (It celebrates secular humanism Judaism). I miss those traditions and, of course, latkas, tzimmes, and matzo ball soup!

  5. Yay for Hanukkah stuff! I'm always happy to see any good crafts & recipes since there aren't too many out there for those of us who celebrate. Happy 1st night!

  6. Hi, Jenn

    Thank you for hosting.


  7. Thanks for hosting Jenn!

    Not many people acknowledge so many different cultures and religions. I'll never forget that you made a Chinese New Year printable last year! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and how happy I am to know you!

  8. Happy Hanukkah Jenn! I hope you have a magical festival of lights and Chrsitmas too. Thank you for the awesome Hanukkah graphics... it is so hard to find wonderful images like these. And thanks for including my project. ( -: I might have linked up twice... wasn't showing up... my apologies! xo malia

  13. Hi Jenn, I think being exposed to a variety of cultures and traditions from a young age is a gift. Enjoy all of your holiday celebrations. And thanks for all the time and effort you put into hosting, it's appreciated!
