What do you love about Hanukkah?

  • Celebrated Christmas growing up so I don't have something about Hanukkah to like. Did play Dreidel in 3rd grade.
  • I'm not sure if it's a good idea to have the fifth day of Hanukkah placed on the same day as Christmas Eve. Is it a good idea to have the sixth day of Hanukkah placed on the same day as Christmas? The Christians may not appreciate sharing December 24, 2011 and December 25, 2011 with the Jews. The Jews may not appreciate sharing December 24, 2011 and December 25, 2011 with the Christians. But here we go, the holidays of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the Fifth Day of Hanukkah and the Sixth Day of Hanukkah has been welded together anyway. If somebody is half Christian and half Jewish (Such as myself), then it would be a matter of no consequence. If somebody is 100% Christian and another person is 100% Jewish, then there might be problems. However, it's only one day. What's the harm one day could bring? Anyway, Happy Hanukkah everybody.

  • Is this livejournal still working? I had my doubts for a while. Anyway, on with the blog entry. So this would be the seventh day of Hanukkah. So this would be the fifth day of Hanukkah presents. Getting eight day of presents was one of the best moments of Hanukkah. Don't get me wrong. I also enjoy the celebration of Judas Maccabeus and his military victories. I admit that I never actually read the Book of Maccabees. Even though the Book of Maccabees is important to the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, the crucial book of Maccabees is not in the Jewish Old Testiment, but rather it's in the Apocrypha. Don't ask me why because I don't have a clue. Anyway, Happy Hanukkah everybody.

  • The Jewish Faith always believed that the Old Testiment of the Holy Bible is authentic and valid. The Jewish Faith never argued against any of the lessons made by the Old Testiment. However, the Jewish Faith never believed that the New Testiment of the Holy Bible was valid. Jews never believed that Jesus was the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Jews never believed that the Book of Revelations is valid. The Jewish Faith was never about wrecking the world beyond repair while you wait for some magic guy from the sky to rescue us all from our mistakes. The Book of Revelations was always too needlessly bloody and pointless to be a valid conclusion to the Holy Bible. There had to be a better way for the Holy Bible to be concluded. At any rate, today is the third day of Hanukkah. Today is the third day of celebrating the military victories of Jewish Biblican hero Judas Maccabeus.
  • 1980 was the last time I went on vacation to Israel. I traveled to Israel with Biologic Dad, Biologic Mom (I promised not to call her that), Heather, Dani and myself. Or rather, it was a journey from Winnetka, Illinois to Paris, France. After spending a few hours in a French Airport, then it was off to Israel. It was for a Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem. I also visited Tel Aviv in the journey. I didn't read from the Torah in Hebrew since I never succeeded in learning the language. Traveling backwards involved going from Israel to Paris, France. After spending a few hours in a French Airport, then it was back to O'Hare Airport and then to Winnetka, Illinois. Flash forward to today. Biologic Dad divorced Mom and married Step-Mom Marnie to live in Sacramento, California. Heather is living in Jefferson City, Missouri. Heather's first and only child Mitchel has been adopted by Mom and is my brother. I had my own apartment for twelve years before I was forced to move back in with Mom. Mitchel, Mom and I now live in Cleveland, Ohio. Dani married Jim Siders and gave birth to two children. Dani, Jim, Jenny Lou and Danny James now lives in Alexandria, Ohio. I've been living in Ohio for so long, it's hard to believe that I once lived in Winnetka, Illinois from 1975 to 1980 and Highland Park, Illinois from 1980 to 1986. Time flies and people change and evolve. With luck, I've been evolving into a better person. Anyway, today is the fourth day of Hanukkah.
