Here's a few of the more absurd menorahs that were featured (my personal favorites for being totally ridiculous are of course the dog-hat menorahs):
And with all that searching for outlandish menorahs, of course I found a few beautiful menorahs, too:
To see last year's collection of menorahs in all their glory, check out the Eight Days of Ugly Menorahs:
Part I: Muttel and Catzel
Part II: The Cats Edition
Part III: The Dogs Edition
Part IV: The Inflatables
Part V: The Hats and Pets Edition
Part VI: The Inflatables
Part VII: What's a Nice Menorah Like You Doing in a Place Like This?
Part VIII: The Christmas Menorahs Edition
And because I still couldn't stop, I've also got from last year all these posts about (you guessed it!) menorahs:
- Menorah-Topped Cars and a lovely Ice Menorah
- I can see a little light... an ode to beautiful menorahs
- The Nostalgia Edition - featuring my kids lighting the menorah
- Menorahs you can make from handprints, branches, metrocards and cupcakes - which are all pretty snazzy, like this one from A Design Affair:
And of course, my menorah wrap-up wouldn't be complete without the post that started it all, which is about how I was lucky enough to meet the incredible bloggers Nicole from Momtrends and Jill from Glamamom - which makes suffering through ugly menorahs totally worth it and then some.
Do you know of a spectacularly ugly - or pretty - menorah? Please leave a comment or a link so I can add it to the collection!
