My Lighted Dreidel Spins Fast And Plays A Song—Happy Hanukkah

The lighted dreidel I have in my home is a blast.

It spins quite fast and plays a song. I enjoy it all quite a lot.

Here are some facts about dreidels.  We have many dreidels in my home.

Though only one that lights up and plays music.

Hanukkah starts at sundown today 12/20.

Happy Hanukkah.

Here are facts about Hanukkah.

How The Liberal Elite Enjoy The Holidays—Enjoy The Season Any Way You Wish

With a fiber optic Christmas tree, some Little Debbie Cookie Wreaths and a few holiday lottery tickets, I am ready for the holidays.

Lottery tickets are a rip-off.  (Only time I’ll ever link to Dave Ramsey.)  I can afford a few every so often. Don’t buy lottery tickets if you can’t afford them.

Or don’t buy them at all if you have any sense.

Here is the Little Debbie website.

I wanted to give you this insight to the lives of the liberal elite. We live like kings and queens.

Just 24 more non-stop retail store and online 24/7 shopping days until Christmas.

And just 19 non-stop shopping days until Hanukkah.

Find your way to a fun holiday season. Enjoy the season in any way you wish and with any and all people who make you happy.

Enjoy as much time to yourself as you can.

Buy what you can afford or buy nothing at all.

Enjoy any holiday to choose to observe, and wish people holiday and Christmas greetings in any way that suits you and is respectful of others.

Stay connected and stay your own course.

And—of course—Occupy Wall Street.

Woolly Mammoth Considers Hanukkah

Extinct, a woolly mammoth and a frequent contributor to this blog, is seen above looking at a Hanukkah menorah.

Extinct says we must be hopeful.

At the same time, Extinct realizes that given the power to do so and try, one group of people may attempt to exterminate another group of people.

Extinct says he knows about life, death and extinction.

Extinct says he loves life.

That said, Extinct has no illusions about life or about people.

Household Menorah—People Not Unlike Ourselves Sought To Kill Every Jewish Person On Earth

Above is our household Menorah for the first night of Hanukkah.

(Update—The picture of our household Menorah won’t stay up on the blog. So now we have a picture of the stained-glass menorah you see above.)

One person of our two-person household is Jewish.

In the lifetime of people still alive today, people not so much different from us made an effort to kill every Jewish person in the world.

There were people who lived in a society not so much different from the society we live in today.

These were people who had radios and cars and read newspapers and lived in apartments and attended movies and followed soccer and followed the Olympics.

Please don’t think this could not happen again today in the United States or anywhere else.

People have not changed so much from the 1930’s and 1940’s.

The United States today is filled with millions of people sick with racism and violence.

The best chronicle I am aware of the history of the Nazi movement is a three-volume history of the Third Reich by Richard Evans.

Here is a review of the third volume of the Evans history with links to reviews of the first two volumes.

Here is the link to the United States Holocaust Museum.

Please Have A Good And Safe Holiday

I used this picture last year on Christmas. The scene in much the same this year as well.

Please have a good and safe holiday. If it is not quite the holiday you have hoped for, find some definition by which it will still be a good holiday.  Please enjoy the day that you have. There will be plenty of time for trouble and worrying after Christmas.
