Melanie rarely saw her family, and that was fine with her. Lindsay and the kids were all the family she needed.
She only felt alone at Hanukkah. Lindsay tried, but she didn’t understand, and the kids preferred Christmas.
The first year Hanukkah and Christmas overlapped, they arrived at Debbie’s to see a huge Menorah lighting the window opposite the Christmas tree. Debbie handed her a dreidel and bag of chocolate coins. Melanie hadn’t played in years, but soon everyone was laughing and playing, drinking wine and making up rules. Ben won the most coins, but Melanie felt like the winner.
