Hanukkah traditions

It is traditional on Hanukkah, in honor of the miracle of the temple oil lamp burning for eight days on one day's worth of oil, to eat fried foods: latkes and jelly donuts are traditional for the Ashkenazim. Lacking the facilities to produce either this year, we instead ate Hanukkah malasadas, sitting on the lanai at Tex's in Honoka'a. They were every bit as good as our friend, who recommended them, said.
