Chanukah is a few candles in, and as the menorah fills up, we can look toward the next big things: Christmas, Kwanzaa, other religious holidays, New Years… Frankly, I am a bit nervous about omitting some magical event—but I can’t get them all so I’m listing those that look charming and quirky. See, too, earlier post on Chanukah Happenings, some of which are scheduled for this weekend.
