So, no one in Latvia celebrates Hanukkah. I know, shocking. But it still struck me as sort of sad not to see any blue incorporated into town Christmas displays and not to see any electric menorahs or cardboard dreidels. Today, I noticed these cookies mixed in with ones shaped like bells and snowflakes at the supermarket. It was one of those pay-by-weight situations, so naturally, I picked through the mix to fill my bag solely with stars. It was my little way of celebrating.
