Chanukah For The Children

My grandmother used to say that Pesach is "for the children". I beg to differ. Pesach is an instrument of torture, designed by a vengeful god to torment well-meaning Jewish women.

Chanukah, on the other hand, is a totally cool holiday. It comes to us during the coldest, darkest season and literally lights up our homes and our hearts. Preparing for Chanukah does not take unreasonable amounts of time, effort, or money. And it's full of stuff that kids love: candles, songs, games, presents, sweet treats... what could be better? Chanukah truly is "for the children". So, to get you started on having a very happy Chanukah, SuperRaizy presents her favorite Chanukah song, sung first by a group of happy Israeli teenagers, and then by a little girl who knows most of the words and has the cutest American accent ever:

Happy Chanukah!!!

That Israeli one is fun! Good voices.

Happy Chanukah, Shabbat Shalom, and I'm glad it's not erev Pesach, too.

Seriously?! Pesach?! Allow me to quote one of my favorite bloggers, who left the following comment on my Shushan Purim post:
"Now why did you have to go and ruin such a nice post with the words "Pesach cleaning"?!"

Shavua tov, and happy Chanukah to you and yours!

Thanks, Leora.

Mrs. S-
I'm sorry, sometimes the resentment and the rage are too powerful, and I have to let a little bit out.
