Enough of Christmas—How About a Little Hanukkah

For the sake of seasonal balance, I’m including a link to Old and in the Way, where Sank gives us a brief primer on what it’s like to be Jewish this time of year with
Musings on The Meaning of Hanukkah. Sank writes:

I don't buy much for this holiday. A few games and books for kids, and the customary gift certificate and catalogue, with suggested items circled for Mrs S to Victoria's Secret, which she ignores for this seasons latest patterned flannel head to toe burqua.

I would dearly love to know if Mrs. Sank ever reads her husband’s blog. Thankfully, mine doesn’t.

Thanks Shelia, I did not think you folks knew I was in a Mid-life Crisis.

I love Sank's dry sense of humour! The way he describes Mrs. S sounds very familiar to me.

Thanks for including Hanukkah. It's so important for the balance of ideas in the Christmas Holiday season.

Great post Sheila. Thanks for reminding us how important it is to remember people of other religions at this time of year. Hanukkah is a very important holiday in the Jewish calendar.
