Of Lights and Festivals (Updated)

Michael L.

Tomorrow is going to be a very strange and wonderful day at the Lumish household.

It is Hanukkah.  It is, in the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday.  And, on top of all that joyousness, it also happens to be Laurie's 30 Something birthday!  We're having a few friends over.  We're going to light the candles and carve the turkey and give presents to my beautiful wife.

I picked up the fun tune above from a terrific piece by Shimona in the Palace entitled, Calories and Candlelight – Chanucah in Israel, over at Jews Down Under.

You guys should take a gander at this exceedingly well-written and joyous piece by Shimona.

She says:
At any rate, this remix beautifully symbolises, in a nutshell, the way Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Mizrachi Jews have come together in the modern State of Israel, to rebuild the Jewish State in our ancient homeland and that the Jewish People is One.
I am not a very religious guy, but sometimes it is nice to be reminded of the best of it.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Shimona.

And with many thanks to Shirl in Oz:

Update: This video is fun!

  1. Happy Everything to all! I had a great week, and am hoping to make my four-day weekend even better. It's also the season of brussels sprouts, my favorite vegetable, right on the stalk! How much better can things get? ;)
