So, along the lines of "if a man talks in the woods and no one is there, is he still wrong.." If its Chanukah and no one is home to celebrate with, should I light a candle on the menorah (well 2, if you count the shamus) ?? Its lonely and quiet and empty in my house right now. Wished both of the boys a happy chanukah on line-- gave older one some gifts at thanksgiving (younger one ordered 2 things that he wanted, one of which was study cards for a class!! the other was an xbox game, after I went out on Black Friday and came back empty handed). Very anti-climactic holiday, especially after a big Thanksgiving. What are the rest of you doing??
