Christmas!

To my delight and surprise this morning, the radio was playing Christmas songs. YAY! Truth be told, I always have a mixed Christmas tape in my car all year round. When I get a hankering, I pop that sucker in and immediate joy insues! It's kinda like drugs, I guess. Only healthier...except if looks could kill, I would be dead. Sheesh...it's only Christmas music...



So, when I got home, I tuned the radio in my kitchen to the Christmas station, and was dancing around my kitchen, just as happy as can be, to Neil Diamond's sultry voice...WHAT THE HECK!?

Neil Diamond singing Christmas songs!?




I have always found it more than slightly ironic that Neil Diamond, a jew, chose to sing Christmas songs. I suppose it's all in the way of business. Christmas=Money...unfortunately.

I guess it only stands to reason. I mean, it's not like Hanukkah songs are all that popular. I imagine the Jewish community could make their own versions of songs, like "Kosher beef roasting on an open fire," "The Little Shofar Boy," or "Have a holly jolly Hanukkah," but I really don't think they would catch on (they can claim "Auld Lang Syne." It sounds yiddish). "On the first day of Hanukkah my true love gave to me, a yamika in a pear tree..."

I think it would be great if the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang "Dradle, dradle, dradle." What do you think?

I think I need to dig out my Christmas music, too. . .

Put on your yarmulke
Here comes Chanukah
So much funukah
To celebrate Chanukah
Chanukah is the festival of lights
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights. . .
