Poll: Dreidel Rules

Hanukkah is like, well, basically now. If you didn’t get your kids presents yet, stop reading. They want Ipods. Like every single kind.

For those who remain, I’ve been meaning to get something off my chest. Everyone always connects Dreidel with Hanukkah for some reason. I’ve never been really sure why. My guess is that no one plays Dreidel on Tisha B’Av.

But I never was into this Dreidel hoopla. Why?

The hidden answer is because I’m cheap but the more obvious answer is that I’m not lame. So even with all the press coverage on dreidels (if you type it in on Google, MJL is #3 after Wikipedia and holidays.net. Take that ilovedreidels.com), I never really learned the rules to the game.

But my curiosity got the best of me. On the MJL homepage we have a link to a wonderful article explaining the dreidel rules.

Am I alone in my ignorance? Let’s find out.
