  12. I love that Hannukah and Christmas Eve are together this year. I expected to see Hanukkah decor, which I enjoy seeing, so was surprised to see Santa and ornaments and Christmas trees. It is wonderful to live in a community where all is honored and celebrated. I imagine that your niece and nephew are excited and you are as well! I know that I am.
