It was customary for the Tzemach Tzedek to have a sort of farbrengen on one of the evenings of Chanuka with his family, including his daughters-in-law. This was called "latkes evening." This was also the practice of the Alter Rebbe and the Mitteler Rebbe. Among the stories the Rebbes told at this meal were some which were widely talked about every Chanuka, though they had been discussed the year before.

My father would give Chanuka-gelt on the evening of the fourth or fifth light.

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.

Daily Quote
As the sun made to set, a deep sleep fell upon Abra[ha]m; and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him. And [G‑d] said to Abram: “Know surely that your descendents shall be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and they will be enslaved to them, and they will afflict them . . . [but] afterwards they will come out with great wealth . . .”
  –From the Torah’s description of the “Covenant Between the Pieces,” Genesis 15:12–14
