It's beginning to look a lot like...

Chanukah, everywhere you go...Bet you thought I was going to say Christmas, huh? Well, it's true, Christmas is definitely out there. Starbucks is already decorated in full holiday regalia. And a local oldies station, 103.3, has starting playing it's 24/7 Christmas music... a bit early this year, isn't it? I see Christmas trees for sale in the store circulars. But if I check my calendar, it's still over a week until Thanksgiving...

But what's really strange about this year is that Chanukah starts on December 5th. That means that the first night of Chanukah is 3 weeks from tonight. Ack!

Every now and then, due to the strange intersection of the secular and Jewish calendars, Chanukah ends up really early (it has to do with the lunar calendar). This is one of those years. So we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with my folks, and probably we'll have some early Chanukah gifts before they leave, and by the time Christmas comes, all those presents will be long forgotten.

Anyway, I guess it's time for the singing Chanukah candles!

I keep forgetting that Chanukah is coming up. Geez!

Anyway, I've tagged you with the 7 Things You May Not Know About Me meme. You can go to my blog (if you'd like) for more info.
