Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I will light a candle! Hey, I think I could even make latkes, I've got the ingredients at home!

Go, Judah Maccabee! Purify that temple! :)

Sarah | 13815 comments Make me some latkes, Jackie? I have too light a hand with oil and salt to make proper latkes. I'll have to wait til I can convince Zu to do it.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I knew somebody was going to post that first. I mean a real Hanukah song.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I like Brave Combo's song "Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah" but I can't find it online.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments There's a good (and also pretty funny) op-ed piece about rekindling the spirit of Hanukkah in today's NYTimes:

Sarah | 13815 comments There are great hanukah songs.

Erran Baron Cohen - Sascha Baron Cohen's brother - did a fantastic album about two years ago.
These are probably my least favorite songs on the album, but they're all that's on youtube.

Can't vouch for these performances since I can't watch youtube here, but they're all hanukah songs.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments How come Jonathan and pi are spelling the holiday differently?

I'm on my phone but I'll check the links later, pi, thanks.


message 15: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Since it's a transliteration no matter what, there are numerous accepted spellings.
Hanukkah
Hanukah
Chanukah
Chanuka
Hanuka

Doesn't really matter.

I usually find Adam Sandler irritating, but I REALLY like the Hanuka song!
