Here Comes Hanukah!

My Dear Sillies,
Hanukah starts tonight. For you, and for the world, may miracles abound. We sure could use 'em!
I'm sharing some photos of my lil Hanukkah candle lighting, especially for Joanne, who made the request. Mixed in are lyrics from my favorite holiday classic, Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song
Take good care.
I love you.

Put on your yarmulke
Here comes Hanukkah
So much funukkah
To celebrate Hanukkah
Hanukkah is
The Festival of Lights
Instead of one day of presents
We have eight crazy nights!
When you feel like the only kid in town
Without a Christmas tree
Here's a list of people who are Jewish
Just like you and me
David Lee Roth lights the Menorah
So does James Caan, Kirk Douglas and the late Dina Shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli?
Bowzer from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzerelli
Paul Newman's half Jewish, Goldie Hawn's half too
Put them together, what a fine looking Jew!
You don't need "Deck the Halls" or "Jingle Bell Rock"
Cause you can spin a dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock (both Jewish!)
Put on your yarmulke
Its time for Hanukkah
The owner of the Seattle Supersonic-ahs
Celebrates Hanukkah
O.J. Simpson: not a Jew
But guess who is?: Hall-of-famer Rod Carew (he converted)
We got Ann Landers and her sister Dear Abby
Harrison Ford's a quarter Jewish - not too shabby!
Some people think that Ebenezer Scrooge is
Well he's not, but guess who is?: All three Stooges!
So many Jews are in showbiz 
Tom Cruise isn't, but I heard his agent is
Tell your friend Veronica
Its time you celebrate Hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica
On this lovely, lovely Hanukkah

So drink your gin and tonic-ah
And smoke your marijuani-kkah
If you really, really wanna-kkha
Have a happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah
Happy Hanukkah!



  1. PS My Sillies, this last photo is when I've already gotten shloshed. <3

  2. I'd love to get sloshed with you. At least I can smoke my marijuanakkah.


    1. There ya go, JJ.
      It would be too much fun. WDW could be in the middle, right?

      Love ya.

    2. I confessed on my blog recently that WDW and I broke up long ago (I wanted to keep him as a character), but he might return for a threesome.

  3. Happy Hanukkah, my beautiful friend. I just got done celebrating by accessing the DMV site and extending my driver's license renewal date --I turn 71 this month. My religion is Not Getting Thrown In Jail, but Judaism is good too. --Love, Geo.

    1. My people also prefer to not get thrown in jail, Geo. So I'll proudly call you a member of my/the tribe.
      Thank you, dear friend. I love you, your heart and spirit.

  4. A very, very happy Hanukkah to you and to all my other Judaic friends - and to the family I never knew.

    1. Thank you, EC. Blessings and a very Happy Hanukah to you, dear one.

  5. Happy Hanukkah from a 50/50 Viking/Jew! I'll definitely play my harmonica and smoke some marijuani-kkah ( only in states where it's legal, of course) and raise a glass to you!

    1. Thank you, Jono. All good things to you this season. Stay warm - raise some hot cocoa to me, if you will. Love and light.

  6. May your Hanukkah nights be joyous and festive. However, I never knew weed was a part of the tradition. I'll ask my rabbi friend about this :)

    1. Maybe the real miracle has to do with cannabis? Judah was a persistent, likeable peace-maker. Yeah, lemme know what your rabbi has to say.
      Thank you, Jeff.

  7. Happy Hanukkah. I'm Jewish in spirit and would love to celebrate with you. Good job on the lighting - glad you kept it to only the candles and nothing else (whew!). Have a safe Hanukkah week. Big hug!

    1. Here's to spinning dreidles together, Joanne. Yeah, I have to be careful with my hair - too easy to light it on fire, especially when more candles are involved.
      Thank you.
      Stay warm and stay well, my good friend.

  8. You look festive!
    David Lee Roth a Jew? I thought he was just a drunk.

    1. I guess he goes too hard on the Manischewitz, Alex. That's potent stuff. Oy vey, there's always one bad apple in a kosher (or non-kosher) bunch.

      Be well, and enjoy the season, Alex.

  9. Love your menorah-lighting photos, Robyn! Have a wonderful Hannukah!

  10. Your closing poem had me in stiches!!!!!!!

    Enjoy the season toots!

  11. HAHAHA! Loved your silliness. A very happy Hanukkah to you!

  12. LOL you sure look festive. Sure many enjoying the marijuana-kkah around here

    1. The marijuana-kkah's the sh*t here
      Throughout the whole year.
      It gets hit all the time
      That's no lie just for rhyme.

      Cheers, Pat.
