That was a Stoop Story from Elissa Weissman about her wrapping-paper escapades in London and how to commemorate Hanukkah against all odds. You can hear her story and others at stoopstorytelling dot com, or on the stoop podcast. You can catch a live show coming up, ‘The Stoop Virtual Holiday Hoo-Ha: An evening of seasonal stories, comedy sketches, and music.” It unfolds a week from Saturday, Dec. 12, at 7:00 p.m. Hanukkah is also right around the corner: it begins next Thursday evening, Dec. 10. The Jewish museum of Maryland starts the celebration early, this Sunday, Dec. 6 with ‘Hanukkah in Space!’ The live streaming event explores: How do you spin a dreidel in zero gravity? Can you light a menorah on the International Space Station? The fun begins at 3 p.m.
