Happy Hanukkah!!! Last night the Festival Of Lights kicked off and it goes until next Monday night. 8 Crazy Nights!! I have a friend who celebrates Hanukkah and one year she invited me over to celebrate with her family, very beautiful holiday. It’s a Jewish tradition which celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over the larger Syrian army. It also celebrates a miracle that happened during this time, where just a day’s supply of oil allowed the menorah in the rededicated Temple in Jerusalem to remain lit for eight days.
Sadly before I got educated on Hanukka I only knew about the holiday because of Adam Sandler. It was on this in 1994 that Adam debut the Hanukka song on Saturday Night Live. It became a huge hit for him. I couldn’t find the original version but here’s a clip from one of Adam’s live shows and people are going nuts for it.
