I want latkes. Chanukah* is only two days away and I'm already drooling over the thought of latkes.
On Facebook, a friend posted some Chanukah songs and another protested that it's not Chanukah yet. The first friend pointed out that, if the goyim can listen to Xmas music two MONTHS before their holiday, then we can listen to Chanukah music two days before ours.
I must agree (and laugh).
*There is no one translation from the Hebrew. Some people spell the holiday "Hanukkah," but I prefer "Chanukah," because it's closer to the actual pronunciation. It's not a soft H sound. It's that guttural "Ch" sound from the back of the throat. Angelica said it best in Rug Rats, "CHanukah! You gotta CHHHH when you say it." (5:05)
