Aahhhh

Winter Break. I still have not decompressed yet. All of my dreams last night had my students in them. They are always on my brain. Hopefully, I will be able to shed work soon and just zone out.

I saw the best thing yesterday. It was a car driving down the highway with a giant, glowing menorah strapped to the top of it. Being the seventh night of Hanukkah, it had seven candles lit. I wanted to honk happy honks, but it was too far off. Way to show off the Jewish pride.

Speaking of, what is wrong with Target? I know there was that whole thing last year where they couldn’t say "Merry Christmas," but why did they have to go completely around and have their TV ads say "Merry Christmas." It's one thing in the stores, but to say only ""Merry Christmas," as opposed to "Happy Holidays," feels really anti-Jew. Does anyone else feel this way?

Happy Hanukkah one and all!

I haven't really thought about it much since I'm not Jewish. Next time someone says "Merry Christmas" just reply "Happy Hanukkah".
