Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Although the Google calendar app didn't quite get it right, the Jewish Festival of Lights began last night at sundown. Here's sending Hanukkah blessings to all my Jewish friends.
Back in the days of my vagrant yoot, I had a mad crush on this cute little Jewish girl, except I had no idea she was Jewish or even what that meant. In the days before the enlightenment, it was called Christmas Vacation, and when we returned to school that year, I asked her what cool Christmas gifts she had received. A puzzled look crossed her face and she replied that she didn't do Christmas. Say what?
My parents may have meant well as they explained how it worked. Well, she's Jewish, and what if you grow up, fall in love, and have kids? Then what? I dunno, but it seems to have worked out for my cousin. Deep down, I think they were just happy that she wasn't Catholic.
That said, for some inexplicable reason, this video brings my dear Mrs TWC a disproportionate amount of enjoyment. White Christmas? Meh. Run, Run, Reindeer? Just OK. Adam Sandler? Whole 'nother thing. Might be her favorite Christmas song.
Can't see it? Look here.
