Today is the first full day of Chanukah, as the festival of lights began at
sundown last night, so happy Hanukkah to all (my way of covering a couple of the
different spellings in one fell swoop). Our family holiday season, which
encompasses Christmas, Hanukah (heh, snuck another in), Saturnalia, and of
course, Festivus, is also in full swing, we put up the tree here last night, and
are headed over to my dad's this afternoon for the first of our celebrations of
the season. I just hope I don't get picked for the feats of strength this year.
