Hanukkah started today at sunset...which is when a new day starts in Jewish culture. It'll continue until sundown on the 26th, for eight nights of fun! And my LED menorah got fresh batteries and its first 'candle' lit tonight. Oy!

But now I have a gift for one and all...I wrote the lyrics to this song, "The Eight Days of Hanukkah", performed to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas". It's quite fun...and easier to remember...like this:


On the first day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the second day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the third day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the fourth day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the fifth day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Five yar-mul-kes!
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the sixth day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Six dreidels spinning...
Five yar-mul-kes!
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the seventh day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Seven latkes frying,
Six dreidels spinning...
Five yar-mul-kes!
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the eighth day of Hanukkah, my Bubby gave to me:
Eight donuts flying,
Seven latkes frying,
Six dreidels spinning...
Five yar-mul-kes!
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see.

On the ninth day of Hanukkah? There's really no such thing!
Soooo...blow out those candles,
Stow that menorah,
Put away that dreidel,
Plan for next year of
Eight donuts flying,
Seven latkes frying,
Six dreidels spinning...
Five yar-mul-kes!
Four bags of gelt,
Three Oy Vays,
Two Mazel Tovs and
A menorah for all the world to see!

Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas, too! And go easy on the Manischewitz, it has to last eight days! So here, have a macaroon or a chocolate coin! Oy! 🥳🕎🎄🤗
