Happy Hanukkah!!

Tonight we honor the brave Maccabees and the miracle that sustained the Jewish people after a brutal war with the Greek Empire. One container of oil, barely enough to light the eternal flame of the synagogue for one day, somehow lasted the eight days necessary to procure more oil. And because of that, we eat oily, scrumptious potato latkes every December. Now that's one delicious miracle.

I'd put the second one up, but the only copy I can find online has that annoying "I'm Blue" song tacked on to the beginning. That DOES NOT get me into the holiday spirit.
