SPUD

Spud is a four letter word.

Tonight is the sixth night of Chanukah.

The holiday celebrates a victory in battle, focusing around the miracle of oil used in the Temple. Since oil is part of the Chanukah story, frying foods in oil are a tradition during the holiday. One of the most common in the United States are fried potato pancakes, called latkes, served with sour cream or applesauce.
