    The Festival of Light is coming up. How is everyone going to celebrate? I have some Jewish heritage and this will me my third year celebrating (I am 33).

    I live alone, so although I do celebrate, it's not as big as it was when I had kids.

    I have my menorah, of course, and my little tchotchkes -- I collect one ornamental dreidel each year. I make great latkes with sour cream and apple sauce, and once during the festival I go out and buy a half dozen jelly donuts. I will make an I-phone recording of my Matza-man singing, and send it to my son. My daughter is considering conversion to Judaism, so I'll be on the phone with her a lot, to see what she is up to.

    There is a Jewish gentleman that I am seeing, and the two of us plan to go together to a civic menorah lighting sponsored by Chabad. We'll buy food, and visit the booths, and have fun talking all bundled up in the cold evening air.
