On the Tenth Day of Hanukkah…

What happens when Christmas and Hanukkah don’t coincide? Simple. Extend Hanukkah! It seems many of us have adopted the model of a holiday “season,” eschewing the specifically prescribed dates.

I was invited to two Hanukkah parties this past Saturday night, the 9th night of Hanukkah, and Hanukkah was noted at JDub Records’ Jewltide Saturday night (the LeeVees performed) and Sunday night, the 10th night of Hanukkah (latkes were served — along with egg rolls).
