Wish I could join you in your celebration of Christmas with the Global Masters, Shanoah. But I’m down wif my Jewish homies today. After all, Hannukkah did start on the Solstice this year – a happy coincidence for a Festival of Lights, don’t you think?

But Jewish kids don’t have Santa Claus (trust me, you ain’t missing much). Instead, as noted Jewish scholar Eric Schwartz (aka Smooth-E) tells us, they have the Hanukkah Bird.

By the way, just how do you spell Channukahh? The LeeVees asked just this question in “How Do You Spell Channukkahh?”. The answer is: They’re just as stumped as I am.
