For Thanksgiving, we participated in our usual Thanksgiving tradition, which is eating Beijing Duck. Only this year, we actually were in Beijing.
Chanuka started on Thanksgiving. We attended a manorah lighting ceremony at Chabad house, as well as lit our own candles. We ate latkas, spun draddles, gave presents.
The kids put on a play at the Chabad House. Akiva and Kenaz, in addition to singing songs, played Assyrian Soldiers. And Akiva is in the school choir.
