Eating jelly donuts is one of the customs that makes Hanukah what it is. My friend related the following story.
Bob was seeing some people for the lighting of the first candle. He thought it would be nice to bring donuts. He called and ordered two dozen from the bakery and would pick them up on the way. With a credit card, it was done.
A few hours later, he picked up the donuts. Two boxes were waiting with the charge slip attached. The charge was extravagantly-more than he expected but, since he hadn’t asked the price when he placed the order and needed the donuts, he took the boxes and left.
Joining his friends and delivering the boxes, he found that the two boxes each contained only six donuts. He rechecked the charge slip and confirmed that he was charged for two dozen. He had only a dozen.
He called the bakery to report the error and receive a credit for one dozen donuts. The salesperson apologized for the error and informed him that she was crediting the full amount charged and to enjoy the donuts.


I listened intently and asked
“Did you feel guilty eating the donuts?”
He answered with a responding “Yes”.

He then added that he had told the story to several people and I was the only one who asked about guilt.

    Maybe the absence of the feeling of guilt is what is wrong with present day society...

    Liz - Jelly donuts were added a few years ago to help combat the kids complaining about Christmas - now you are able to say "Latke's AND Jelly Donuts, shut up and light your candle".

    On a serious note - it is all about food cooked in oil. Potato Pancakes or Latkes that many of us grew up with, in Israel it is the Jelly Donut called "Sufganiyot" have become more and more popular.

    I knew donuts were a tradition due to the oil used to cook as mentioned above by Steven, but not the jelly part. I do enjoy a good jelly donut from time to time.
