Hanukkah revealed!

For those of you who don’t know much about Hanukkah, and for those of you who think it’s a major Jewish holiday, this short article is very enlightening, and also amusing.

My favorite quip is that Hanukkah is a “they tried to kill us. We won. Let’s eat.” category holiday. Which is pretty much every Jewish holiday!

Not really. But I understand your sentiment. Look up High Holy days for more.
