Hello! Welcome to my blog this week :)
Today I will be blogging about Chanukah and how I celebrate it.
This particular Chanukkah my family and I  went to the new Cosco near my house and looked at the lights that were decorated on the trees.
We bought a huge bag of mnms because my family and I  have a tradition of  playing a game. The game is that there is a bowl of mnm's and all of us have mnms. We take the dreidel and spin it. If it lands on a nun (Hebrew letter) we get no mnms. If it lands on gimmel we take three from the large bowl.
We eat jelly doughnuts which are delicious, and a cake my dad bought. We then lighted the candles and exchanged gifts. 

My sister gave me a chapstick and two lipglosses, she is so sweet to get me a gift, especially things   I like. My mom gave me a stuffed giraffe/owl because I collect stuffed animals like the giraffe. (TY Beanie boos) 
I also got some stuff from my grandma and perfume from my dad. 
This Chanukah has been a lot of fun and memorable. :) Thank you so much for reading my blog and have a nice day.

The giver

Hey everyone today I wanted to to talk about the book The Giver. I finished the book yesterday and it was such a good book. The book is about a community where everyone is the same and the community is all about perfection. There is no emotions, feelings, or differences. Except the giver and Jonas, who have all the memories of the past. Like colors, feelings, and emotion. 
Jonas is selected to be the receiver and goes every day to get memories like anger, happiness, and other emotions. He goes through pain and sees beyond, sees stuff that the community doesn't have the ability to see.

That is basically the summary of the book and I totally recommend it. This book teaches us what we have and to be thankful for it.  We learn that life is nothing without emotions and differences. 
The community style is called a utopian society, where everyone is the same. Obviously, this book is fiction, there's no way a utopian society could work in life. First of all, most of the people in the world could see colors. Colors are such a beautiful thing in life, and I don't think anyone would want to get rid of that. 
Especially our special talents, I don't think people would want to get rid of that. Or our feelings, feelings is a very important part in life. It's important to have emotion, and feelings. Therefore, I don't think a utopian society would happen.
Question: Have you read The Giver? If you have did you like it? If you haven't do you want to?
