Hanukkah was coming soon but we did not have much to celebrate with. No dreidel, no menorah, no candles, no latkes, no presents.
Why don’t you look on the computer?mommy asked. okay I said and mommy set it up for me and i started looking.the first website i looked at was an idea for a lego dreidel and i had all the pieces but one:a lego circle. then,i came up with a idea to use the lego head instead. It really spun! then, i looked for a way to make a menorah. On one website i found a lot of ideas for making one. I made a shopping list of everything we needed.
the next day we went to Harvy Norman to look for the things we needed but we did not find them. a few days later we went to Mr.diy they did not have hex-nuts but they did have car things and lots of art stuff.it worked! and we had all the things we needed for Hanukkah! for some of you who don’t celebrate Hanukkah here is a brief description of it: Hanukkah is a eight night celebration. the story of Hanukkah is…
a long time ago the greek king antiochus wanted everyone to be greek like him.but a group of jews who called themselves the maccabees still practiced their religion. but antichus wanted everyone to be greek so the maccabees had to fight antichuses greek army and the army fought back. but the maccabees won.after the greeks left, the maccabees had to clean up the temple because the greeks messed it up .when it was time to light the eternal lamp there was only enough oil to have it lit one day and it would take eight days to get more oil .but the lamp stayed lit til the eighth night enough time to get more oil .that is the Hanukkah miracle.
