Realizing there were no Chanukah equivalents, Lori improvised a few of her own. The following year her daughter asked to watch a Dreidelmans TV special and the web series was born.
Lori has created several holiday themed families to round out the neighborhood of Holiday Hills. While the Dreidelmans are Jewish they live in a world were many cultures coexist.
