Well said Ross, well said.
Anyway. Tonight is the first night of Chanukah. And so I decided to make a Chanukah post. Just to let you all know what I'll be doing these next eight days. Plus the videos are also really funny.
Firstly let's start with an educational video. Yes ELMO!
It's prounced Chhhanukah. Hanukkah? No Chhhanuka! Hanukkah? Actually both ways are right! (Although really it's actually Chanukah. Just saying.) Secondly dreidel game. Nun, Gimel, Hey and Shin. Stands for each word of the Hebrew phrase Ness Gadol Hayah Sham which means A great miracle happened there. If you live in Israel you say Poh instead of Sham (here instead of there). And as explained in the video Nun- you get nothing, Gimel you win everything. But if you land on Hey you get half of whatever you play with and if you land on shin then you have to add one object from your pile into the central pile.
Yes I know this video has no Elmo in it but it explains the story really well. And the second song, first time is in Hebrew, second time in Yiddish and third time in English. (Although as far as I can tell the English version isn't actually a translation of the Hebrew verse but a song in its own right).
This video is hilarious. Well I get all the jokes. What's your favourite part of Chanukah?
HAPPY CHANUKAH EVERYONE!
