Wow. I totally thought Chanukkah started with an "H."
Not that I had much of an idea where to go from there.
I was so far off that google couldn't even figure out what I meant.
So I looked up a list of Jewish holidays and at Judaism101.com it said "Chanukkah." You learn something new every day.
I picked the kids up at daycare the other day and Sam said "Happy Chanukkah, Mom!"
"Thanks Sam. Happy Chanukkah to you, too."
"What are we going to do for Chanukkah?"
"Um. Not much really. We don't celebrate Chanukkah."
"But we celebrate Halloweeeeeeen" (with just a hint of whine and a dash of outrage).
"I cannot argue with that, my friend."
"So why don't we celebrate Chanukkah?!"
"It's just one of those things, buddy."
"But I like dessert!"
I really don't know how to respond to that.
BTW, Judaism101.com, I just spellchecked this post and spellcheck begs to differ about Hanukkah.
