Tradition en "Burning Bright:" Flaming Tea for Chanukah <p></p><p>Latkes? Check. Chanukah gifts? Check.</p><p></p><p>Brandy-soaked sugar cubes to set afire…What’s that? You’ve never taken part in a Flaming Tea Ceremony for Chanukah?</p><p></p><p>Neither had I, nor anyone I knew, not in all our years of celebrating the Jewish holiday known as the "Festival of Lights."</p><p></p><p>It goes like this: Everyone at the table soaks a sugar cube in brandy, places it in a teaspoon, lights it with a candle, sings a holiday song, then drops the little fireball into a glass of tea, which puts out the flame. Then everyone drinks their tea.</p><p></p> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Amy Rogers 17397 at "Burning Bright:" Flaming Tea for Chanukah
