If the following post looks familiar for you old-timers, it should. It’s a reprisal of last year’s kickoff to Chanukah, the Festival of Lights. I’d better get this post published as I still need to stock up on Chanukah gelt today. Enjoy!
Tonight we celebrate the start of Chanukah, so for any Jews who wander through, Happy Chanukah!
For any of my non-Jewish Snarkster friends, come play along. The following video will break down the dreidl game for you. Although, I’m pretty sure we won’t be rapping this tune at Tali’s school Chanukah Celebration, I think it’s catchy enough to work its way into our family celebration. It’s all good.
The rapper featured is SMOOTH-E. By day, he is comedian Eric Schwartz. He is an up and coming comedian – more than that, I don’t know. I’ll study up along with you and perhaps by the end of the beautiful Festival of Lights, I can be rapping along with him. Although I’m pretty sure we won’t take Grandma’s clothing back in our own little game of DREIDL. I mean who treats their grandmother this way?! Tempting as it is.
Remember, Gimel takes all – now spin!
Oh, and the thing with the frying pan, only once has it come to that in our dreidl games. I believe I’ve only had to hold the menorah up in a menacing way at Scissors, not the kids – but never was an eyebrow singed. Really all in all – pretty tame.
Happy Chanukah and even if you don’t celebrate the Holiday, get yourself a latke. If you stop by the Lampsha Household, we’ll have plenty along with the ch-ch-ch-chocolate coins!
