Food Thanksgiving Hanukkah Pumpkin Latkes

This Oct. 7, 2013 photo shows pumpkin latkes with spiced cranberry sour cream in Concord, N.H. Though potatoes have their own symbolism in the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, it is the oil used in the frying that is particularly significant; it symbolizes the long-lasting oil burned in the temple lamps in the story of Hanukkah. And that is why there are so many latke variations, including sweet potato, onion and carrot. (AP Photo/Matthew Mead)
