Every year I mean to do this. I mean to wish everyone a happy Hanukkah and a merry Christmas on their respective times of the year. Christmas is easy. You can’t escape Christmas.
Hanukkah, however, I kept missing. I never knew when it started.
There is a reason for this, outside just my native laziness. Hanukkah’s placement isn’t based on the Gregorian calendar but on the Hebrew calendar. I know, who would have thunk it, right?
In any case, it moves on the calendar I use. I didn’t know that; now I do. Hopefully I’ll remember next year and this can become an annual thing.
If not, here’s hoping next years Hanukkah will be a good one, too.
