Happy Hanukkah!

Happy HanukkahHappy Hanukkah, Modern Philosophers!

I know it’s easy for the holiday to get lost in the shadow of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Christmas, which seems to now begin right after Halloween, so I wanted to make sure it got a mention on the blog.

When I first started this blog last year, my good friend Hanukkah Harry took me to task, over an amazing spread he brought up from New York, for going all out about Christmas, but forgetting the Festival of Lights.

He had a point.  I couldn’t just leave the Holiday in the hands of Adam Sandler and his goofy song.  It’s so much more important than that.

Of course, my heart belongs to The Girl Who Goes To Temple, and she is the one who inspired me to start this blog.  So for my Sweetheart and for all my other Jewish friends, I want to say Happy Hanukkah.  May the next eight days bring you happiness and joy.

I also promise to have a little chat with the Calendar Commission about making sure that Hanukkah gets some stand alone time in the coming years.  This starting on Thanksgiving Eve is just unacceptable!

Happy Holidays!

    Holy days are holidays , so it seems praying is the reason to celebrate..the time you spend with God 🙂

    Well, the holiday isn’t going to start on Thanksgiving for another 7,000 years from what I’ve heard, so we should be okay.

  3. Totally agree with you about Thanksgivukah. We had our big TG dinner a few weeks ago when family was visiting so plan on having some matsoh ball soup tomorrow for dinner (before going off to friends’ house at sundown for a decadent dessert!

  4. I just love the story behind Hanukkah. Happy Hanukkah!

  5. Happy Chanukah & Thanksgiving…one month belated for Canada. Did you know (at least some) Cubans celebrate TG as well?

    As a child, I felt a change in the emotional air, a time when the adults around you viewed the world from the eyes of a child once again. There’s something about the eyes of a child during the holidays that does bring out a child-like wonder in adults. It doesn’t seem to matter what the holiday is called.
