25 Kislev



I think I would have made a good Jew, had my birth and life been different. The food is great, the humor is self-effacing, and the faith itself is guided by legal reasoning. I like the idea of taking your spiritual grievances to court for a fair hearing (although I bet God has the best lawyers...). At any rate, the 25th day of Kislev begins at sundown today, and with it, Hanukkah. The Black Pope wishes a big ""Hag Hanukkah Sameach!" to all of our Jewish readers. It's also the Solstice, the shortest day of the year - so they can race the Pagans home to see who starts celebrating first!

I went to find an image on teh intertubez to put with this post, but there were just too many...

Oh, I like the cactus . . . and the motorcycle . . . and the pez dispenser! I can't decide, they are all so great!

We each have our own menorahs in my family- even my christian mom . . . my grandma gave her a tree shaped menorah that someone had given her- it was our Hanukkah bush.

I did light candles last night- but that was just because the power was out . . .
