Yeah, Thanksgiving is great, but Hanukkah is a holiday entirely devoted to eating foods fried to a tempting golden brown in hot oil. Okay, maybe not entirely, but foods like latkes (potato pancakes) and soufganiyot (jelly donuts) are traditionally served on Hanukkah because they remind us of the miracle of the holiday. So light up your menorah, fry up some golden latkes, braise your brisket until it’s falling-apart tender, play a little dreidel, and get to feasting.

Oh, and take a peek at this Hanukkah porn to hold you over until tomorrow night.
