Chanukah II and III and this isn’t working out so well

How is it that I managed to blog every day of the Omer last year, but, here we are, less than halfway through Chanukah, and I have already faltered on my promise to Chanukah bloge every day of my favorite holiday.

So here’s some miscellany for you.

Yesterday we had an office Chanukah lunch estravaganza. The menu? Donuts, soda, cookies, and latkes. All normal. In addition, we had a never-ending spread of Sushi. Oh, UJC, you are a strange place to work.

Also, here’s a link to an article I wrote for Jewcy when I was in Israel a couple of years ago about Chanukah. It’s still a pretty good piece and it was my first taste of blog-related peer acceptance. A Secret History of Chanukah.

Chappy Chanukah.

    What is with this snow effect that causes little white spots to cascade down the page? It makes reading this blog a bit tiring on the eyes and causes the cursor to flicker.

    Chappy Chanukah to all.

    I know the challenge. I’m on candle 4 and have tried to be religious about it. My family is not too pleased that I’m taking such time to put together my daily Chanukah blogs. I should have prepared them ahead of time…

    Anyway, check them out at
