When you say Chanukah, remember it's not the "ch" in Charles, but a guttural version of the one in Johann Sebastian Bach. Can't pronounce it? Just say Hanukkah, with a very American sounding "h." And if you didn't see our December issue, on stands now, pick it up for plenty of info on celebrating the Jewish Festival of Lights.

Chanukah blazes through Christmas this year, starting the evening of Dec. 20 and ending Dec. 28. So bring those Star of David cookies to the Rosenbaums’ house before you bring the Monsons their candy canes. And, if you want to experience Chanukah yourself, here’s how to do it.

Vosen’s Bread Paradise German Bakery for jelly donuts

The oil burned eight nights! In commemoration, Chanukah food is oily, and the Israeli treat of choice is Sufganiyot (jelly donuts).

Color Me Mine for the menorah

With so many designs to choose from, your menorah should really say something about you. Paint your own, and Color Me Mine will glaze and fire it up for about $20. Ornaments and Star of David plates are also available. Call ahead to make sure they are available before you go. 1400 Foothill Drive, Ste. 152, SLC, 801-581-1515, colormemine.com

Whole Foods for the electric menorah

Maybe you're worried your menorah is a fire hazard or just want one you can put in the window to compete with the neighbor's inflatable Santa all night. Whatever the case, we saw your menorah at Whole Foods downtown (and while you're there, pick up all of the Chanukah treats you'll need as well).
