Hanukkah Decorations

Dec 16, 2014

Hanukkah is almost here! Which means it’s time to get your crafts going so you can bring some cheer and homemade warmth with these decoration ideas. Whether you have them already placed and hung for your celebration or do the crafts with friends and family at the party these decorations are perfect for all eight nights of Hanukkah.

Glass Bottle Menorah

Supplies:

  • 8 glass bottles all the same size
  • 1 larger bottle
  • spray paint
  • 9 tapered candles

Instructions:

  1. Gather your bottles. This may take some time and a lot of drinking.
  2. Remove any labels on the bottles by soaking them in hot soapy water.
  3. Spray paint the bottles whatever color you like. If they need more than one coat, let the first coat dry completely before applying the second.
  4. Let paint dry and wedge candles into the top of the bottles.
  5. Arrange the bottle so that the bigger bottle is in the center of a line of the smaller bottles.
  6. Light one every night.

Star of David

Supplies:

  • Blue pipe cleaners
  • Yellow String
  • Thumb tacks or tape

Instructions:

  1. Make two triangles with the pipe cleaners. Twist one closed and leave the other open.
  2. Insert the open triangle into the close one so that it weaves in and twist the second triangle closed.
  3. Tie the yellow string to the top of the star.
  4. At different lengths hang multiple stars in front of a window, from the ceiling or a chandelier and enjoy!

Paper Dreidels

Supplies:

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Toothpicks

Instructions:

  1. Cut ¼” strips of paper. A paper cutter works best, but scissors will do too.
  2. Glue the paper to the toothpick. Make sure to glue it just where the taper of the toothpick ends so it’s attached to an even surface.
  3. Let the glue dry completely. Waiting is the hardest part.
  4. Tightly wrap the paper around the toothpick.
  5. Glue the end of the paper to itself to create a disc of paper and let dry completely.
  6. Using your thumb and forefinger pull the outer edge of the paper disc up so that there is a little bowl of paper. Do this slowly so it doesn’t unravel.
  7. Good luck playing Draidel!

Men and women are different in many ways but that doesnt mean that they cant be equal. Both have an equal role in shaping the society.

The truth is, male and females are not equal. Yes, they have similarities as breathing, living creatures. But, in most cases, that's the only thing truly in common. To put this is in a faster written, faster to read way; Mental, physical, religious, ect. views are very rarely ever 100% identical, which very easily goes for everyone regardless of gender. If male and females were truly ever viewed as equal or as the same, society would display that. Father being allowed to play as mother or mother being allowed to play father (in cases, of course), fair pay in different job placements (especially when well-deserved as a huge, main argument), fair treatment, fair appearance in industries, ect. as simple based examples. If they were viewed as equal, there would be no need for feminism and several cases of stand-offs for different rights. Now, of course this doesn't mean it needs to viewed as kindergarten play, "one for her and one for him and one for them." When things are well deserved, the more the better for that person. Male or female. But, regardless of looks or gender, there are times where one gender will hold more dominance than the other. And, throughout the human history, it has been that way. And it does not seem as if there will be much change for that in the future. Long story short: No, male and females are not equal for several different reasons.
