Just in time for Chanukah and for Christmas, we’ve made a Menorah and a Christmas tree out of discarded books. I’ve see three different types of Christmas trees, but never a Menorah. My assistant said, “Even you, Toni, cannot make a Menorah out of books.” The gauntlet was thrown down, and so I had to try. It was really very simple, if I added a thin scrap of plywood that I had in my basement. I added some battery operated candles that I purchased for decorating my house and voila! It turns out the Christmas tree was more difficult.This is the first display that I have made that I have seen a student take pictures of.
Now, what to do about Kwanzaa? Maybe I will tackle that one next year.
Whatever holiday you celebrate at this time of year, I hope it is a happy one!
