Or Hanukkah, if you prefer the less phlegmy spelling. (Side note: Yeah, I probably should’ve posted this yesterday, the first day of Chanukah, but I flaked. But, hey, the up side to an eight-day holiday is, I get a wide berth in terms of fudging it.) Anyway. Because I am lazy, I went with the first Chanukah song all of us think of:
