Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. As Jewish holidays go, it’s not the most significant but it is seasonal in that like many religious holidays at this time of year, there is an emphasis on light. Wait, the date of Hanukkah is not based on the solar calendar, right? So, what does that mean? For answers to this and other burning questions about Hanukkah, let’s go to YouTube.
I found two topical videos on what Hanukkah is all about. The first is from the Christian perspective:
Hokay, moving right along.
These two know the whole story of Hanukkah and are inspired by Taylor Swift?
And that’s what Hanukkah is all about, Charlie Brown. I’ll bet you’ll be singing that tomorrow. I know I will.
Anyway, Happy Hanukkah to all my illuminated friends in Squirrel Hill.
