Three more days to panic. Then you will have to get serious! By the way, this is, always has been and always will remain a Merry Christmas site. Season's Holiday is April 1, not in December. So, save your "Season's Greetings" for four months or risk looking really stupid. Hannukhah is already over, that was November 27 to Dec 5. In 2016 it will coincide with Christmas. Sad news from Sweden. Lillemor wrote me just shortly before I was going to check the live camera. The Yulebokken (Christmas Goat) in Gavle was burned down just a few hours ago. :( The pranksters won, again. The expensive fire retardant was totally useless. Unfortunately the people in Gavle focus on being cute. Elin, Tiger Woods' ex. is from there. Her mother is the Governor. Quite cute. But not smart enough to put some remote controlled garden hoses there and have volunteers over the internet controll them via a cheap X-10 Internet interface. That is apparently too Hi-Tech for people focusing on being cute. They could have used a lawn sprinkler on top to cover the whole Yulebokken in a six foot thick coat of ice. But for that they might have to get Ole and Sven back from Minna-Sohta. Sad! Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Dianne for this comparisons between Christmas and Hannukha: Jews love Dec. 25th. It's another paid day off work. We go to movies and out for Chinese food, and Israeli dancing. Chanukah is eight days. It starts the evening of the 24th of Kislev, whenever that falls. No one is ever sure. Jews never know until a non Jewish friend asks when Chanukah starts, forcing us to consult a calendar, so we don't look like idiots. We all have the same calendar, provided free with a donation from either the World Jewish Congress, the kosher butcher, or the local Sinai Memorial Chapel (especially in Florida). * Christmas is a major holiday, a Statutory (paid) holiday, * Chanukah is a minor holiday with the same theme as most Jewish holidays: They tried to kill us, we survived, let's eat!!! * Christians get wonderful presents such as jewelry, perfume, stereos... * Jews get practical presents such as underwear, socks, Viagra, or a the collected works of the Rambam which looks impressive on the bookshelf. * There is only one way to spell Christmas. * No one can decide how to spell Chanuka, Chanukah, Chanukka, Channukah,Hanukah, Hannuka, whatever. * Christmas is a time of great pressure for husbands and boyfriends. Their partners expect special gifts. * Jewish men are relieved of that burden. No one expects a diamond ring on Chanukah, not even a fake one. * Christmas brings enormous electric bills. * Candles are used for Chanukah. Not only are we spared enormous electric bills, but we get to feel good about not contributing to the energy crisis. * Christmas carols are beautiful. Silent Night, Come o Ye Faithful..... * Chanukah songs are about dreidels made from clay or about having a party and dancing the Hora. Of course, we are secretly pleased that many of the beautiful carols were composed and written by Jews. And don't Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond sing them beautifully? And made tons of money singing them? * A home preparing for Christmas smells wonderful. The sweet smell of cookies and cakes baking. Happy people are gathered around in festive moods. * A home preparing for Cha nukah smells of oil, potatoes and garlic and onions. The home, is always full of loud people all talking at once about nothing anybody is interested in. * Christian women have fun baking Christmas cookies. * Jewish women burn their eyes and cut their hands grating potatoes and onions for latkes on Chanukah. Another reminder of our suffering through the ages. * Parents deliver gifts to their children during Christmas. * Jewish parents have no qualms about withholding a gift any of the eight nights of Chanukah. * The players in the Christmas story have easy to pronounce names such as Mary, Joseph and Jesus. * The players in the Chanukah story are Antiochus, Judah, Maccabee, and Matta-whatever. No one can spell it or pronounce it the same twice in a row. On the plus side, we can tell our friends any BS, and they believe we are wonderfully versed in our history. * In recent years, Christmas has become more and more commercialized. * The same holds true for Chanukah, even though it is a minor holiday. It makes sense. How could we market a major holiday such as Yom Kippur? Forget about celebrating. Think observing. Come to synagogue, starve yourself for... 27 hours, become one with your dehydrated soul, beat your chest, confess your sins, make everybody else feel guiltier than you, a guaranteed good time for you and your family. Tickets a mere $200 per person. * Christians greet each other with "Merry Christmas" and a smile. * Jews greet Christians with "Merry Christmas" and a smile, so that they won't be asked when Hanukhah is, or how it is spelled. Jews greet other Jews with "Nu?"and hurry on before the other can start complaining.

Thanks to Rose for this story: I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically and suggesting I take a closer look. Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror--- wearing nothing but a camera!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stephen Goss, 53, Hacketstown, NJ Marriage Proposal during arrest Reported by Moe Talk about a marriage proposal to remember. An Oklahoma man proposed to his girlfriend last week while an officer tried to arrest him on two outstanding warrants. An officer spotted Justin Harrel of Elk City in a local park last Friday and discovered that he had outstanding warrants out of two counties for obtaining cash or merchandise by bogus check, according to court documents. Police said Harrel resisted arrest at first. "I advised Justin that he was under arrest and directed him to turn around and place his hands behind his back," the officer wrote in his police report. "Justin said, 'Steve, let's talk about this. Give me five minutes.'" When the officer took him into custody, Harrel explained that he was about to propose to his girlfriend. He asked if he could go ahead with the proposal. The officer allowed Harrel to complete the marriage proposal, and Harrel's girlfriend eventually said yes. Harrel then asked the officer to get the engagement ring from his coat pocket and give it to her. The officer handed the ring to the girlfriend. Harrel was not cited for resisting an officer.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Cutlery Tray for Desk Drawer Organizer Ever wondered what other uses cutlery trays have? I cheaply sourced one at a garage sale recently with an extra sliding top tray which lifts off. I ended up using it to store/ organize stationary bits and pieces in a drawer in our computer room. Before this I was going to use it in my make-up/hair accessory drawer. By Knitwit Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A certain tax attorney took on a very complex case of tax evasion for a rather mysterious client. He devoted over a year to the case, familiarizing himself with every loophole and angle of current legislation, and made a brilliant argument before the court. His client was called out of town when the jury returned with its verdict, a sweeping victory for his client on every count. Flushed with victory, the lawyer exuberantly cabled his client, "Justice has triumphed!" A realistic fellow, the client immediately wired back, "Appeal at once!"

After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up." "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?" "Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen."
After the christening of his baby brother in church, little Johnny sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That priest said he wanted us brought up in a good Christian home, but I want to stay with you guys instead!"
