Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah

On Christmas day, no one says happy holidays, they don't say blanket statements, they say merry Christmas.

I'm Jewish, and this happy happy holidays stuff is bananas.

They actually make a beer called that. My mom got it for me one year. I hear it's not bad...but it's a darker beer...not my taste.

Happy Chanukah, enjoy the time spent with loved ones, because all in all that is what really matters.

For the second night of Chanukah, I want a Flyers win though.

Thank you. This is why I started the thread.

This might be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. I see Hanukkah and Chanukah - is there a difference in the meaning of the two words?

The way I understand it -- is that it's the same holiday with the same meaning but spelled differently.

I heard it wasn't a zombie, but instead CockRoaches like in Borat, they appear and substitute your small change caches for ipods, tiffany bracelets, other worthless jappy endeavors, and Latkas!!

Well, since Hebrew looks like hiroglyphics (sp??)...it's just spelled phonetically. The "cha" in Chanukka is that raspy, have something caught in my throat "cha".... so people spell it both ways. Aren't you glad you asked?

Im onboard with the 'politically correct holiday season is *********" boat. dont be ashamed about celebrating or not celebrating any of these holidays. Show pride, and show it well. All of these holidays are about being together and spreading good will twards each other, not getting into political debates over nothing.




FWIW, Political Correct = Morally Wrong.

In much of the English speaking world, its spelled Hannukah. In English, there isn't an equivalent to ח or chet (Chhhhh *spits a bit* hhhh is how you pronounce it). Both ways are right, but Chanukah I'd argue is closer to the original hebrew pronunciation.
