Hanukkah

Posted by shanoah on December 23, 2008

This post was tricky. It wanted to become a post about George Harrison, even going to far as to try to persuade me that, yes, I really should be playing music about Krishna in the middle of Hanukkah[1], days after Winter Solstice, days before Christmas. But I won. And you’ll be getting a post featuring George Harrison in a few days.

Then, I was looking for a song, Hanukkah Homeboy, by Doc Mo She. All I found were bits and pieces talked over by news people:

News people talking over a song I wanted to play

When looking for that, I found some Jewish hiphop that wanted to be played. Again, later. So, I’m going with this for a song for today instead:

Merry Hanukkah (A Jewish Christmas Rap)

Oh well, at least I know what I’m posting for the next two days.

[1] And the trouble is that there are several ways to transliterate Hebrew words; many of the letters represent several different letters in English, and there aren’t any vowels written out. Though that’s a bit of a simplification.
